Former New York Giants linebacker Spencer Paysinger had his Super Bowl ring stolen from his house this past weekend.

It wasn’t a great weekend for retired New York Giants linebacker Spencer Paysinger, who had his Super Bowl ring stolen by two thieves. Paysinger apparently didn’t lock his Super Bowl ring securely after showing it off at an elementary school’s Career Day.

Paysinger spent time with the Giants from 2011-14, having won Super Bowl 46 with them in his rookie season.

“My Super Bowl ring should serve as a cherished family heirloom, not an unfortunate event,” he added.

“If you’re reading this or if anyone knows the two young men in the video, please be assured there are no consequences tied to this post. This isn’t bait, there are no cops involved and nothing will happen to you by giving back my ring; keep the other s**t.”

Paysinger originally signed with the Giants as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Oregon in 2011. Across four seasons, Paysinger appeared in 62 games, starting in 14 of them. After his Giants tenure, Paysinger went on to spend time with the Miami Dolphins, New York Jets, and Carolina Panthers. He said goodbye to his playing career after his stint with Carolina.

Paysinger seems to be taking a laidback approach to this, as he’s assuring that nothing will happen if the thieves return the ring.
