View Full Version : Football Edgerrin James going for his 2nd Super Bowl ring

As it turns out, you do not need to win a Super Bowl to get a Super Bowl ring. Arizona's Edgerrin James, who did not win a Super Bowl while playing for the Colts, did receive a Super Bowl ring from the team. Pretty classy move by that organization, although it's not the way I would've played it.

James signed with the Cardinals as a free agent in March of 2006, and less than a year later the Colts were champs. Instead of sending him a ring, I would've sent a picture of the ring with a note that said "Suck it!"

I don't have a big problem with him getting a ring, I just didn't know this was possible. Was it a spare ring? Are there usually extras to give out? Why don't we know more about ring distribution? Will my support of the Cowboys someday lead to a ring in the mail from Jerry Jones? And why not? I want answers to my Super Bowl ring questions.

Over the weekend, announcers also revealed that Pittsburgh's Willie Parker bought his dad a new car after winning the Super Bowl, and hid the ring in the trunk as a bonus. Let's hope he got him a good home security system too.

some NFL players like Ray Lewis have replicas or copies of the actual Lombardi trophy. Think I saw it on cribs or something like that. Whether they pay to have another one made I'm not sure. Alot of those rings etc come from companies like Jostens, etc. I'm sure theres a order form or something and you can req to get more if you pay for it.
