According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, former New York Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor and his agent Mark Lepselter were told that actor Charlie Sheen was the winning bidder of his Super Bowl XXV championship ring that his son T.J. Taylor auctioned off last week.
Glazer did acknowledge that they don’t really know if Sheen was the buyer, but it would be interesting if he did. He’s surely be “winning.”
We’ll update this post with any further information.

For the next three months, the New York Giants will be without their star receiver.
(And, no, I don’t mean Victor Cruz.)
According to multiple reports, Hakeem Nicks suffered a fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot during OTAs Thursday, and will be sidelined for 12 weeks.
The injury, of the non-contact variety, occurred when Nicks was running routes during individual drills...
When Hakeem Nicks broke a bone in his foot yesterday, he was given an initial recovery of around 3 months, which would, as Tom Coughlin said, put him in a race for their week 1 game, especially since the Giants start 4 days earlier than everyone else, on Thursday Wednesday Night Football. However, a day later, the prognosis doesn’t look as bleak.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter...
Despite having Ahmad Bradshaw, who had a very productive year in 2010, the Giants' rushing offense ranked dead last in the NFL last season.
Bradshaw missed a good portion of the season with a foot injury, but even when the starter was healthy and on the field, the running game was very inconsistent.
The Giants don’t have a great run blocking offensive line, and they would...
As much as we’d love to believe that actor Charlie Sheen bought Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl ring, it’s not true. Sheen released a statement to address the matter.
“As much as I would be honored to own such an important artifact…I had nothing to do with the acquisition,” wrote Sheen.
Now it’s time to move on, don’t think we’ll ever know who bought...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New York Giants won’t trade disgruntled defensive end Osi Umenyiora unless they believe they’ll be able to receive maximum value in return.
“Chances are the Giants will never make a move…unless they believe they are getting max value in return,” said Schefter, per Evan Silva.
I believe there’s no way the Giants will trade...
Hakeem Nicks 2012 Season is now in doubt.
The New York Giants Super Bowl title defense got off to a bad start today as wide receiver Hakeem Nicks broke the fifth metatarsal of his right foot according to a report by Michael Eisen of Giants.com.
This is bad news for the Giants, who already had to deal with loss of Mario Manningham, the star receiver of the Super Bowl,...
Giants wide receiver Hakeem Nicks broke the fifth metatarsal in his right foot during Wednesday morning's organized team activity. He will be out for 12 weeks and will undergo surgery Friday in North Carolina to have a screw placed into his foot. Nicks should be ready return to work by August 20, depending on how quickly he heals.
Offseason workouts aren't vital only for teams with new coaches and high draft picks. For the Super Bowl champion Giants, they must work in new pieces after several key players were pilfered from their roster by other teams. Wide receiver Mario Manningham signed with the 49ers, running back Brandon Jacobs joined him after not being able to work out a restructured contract with...
It wouldn't be New York Giants football without tremendously horrible injury news, and for the second consecutive day, the team got exactly that. The club announced via Twitter that wide receiver Hakeem Nicks fractured the 5th metatarsal of his right foot and will be out approximately 12 weeks.
Nicks will undergo surgery on Friday to have a screw inserted in his foot, and a...
The 2012 NFL Draft is complete, free agency is over, the teams all have their new coaches going into next season, and we now have a clearer idea of who the New York Giants and other teams are or are trying to be going into the 2012 NFL season.
The NFC East beat up on each other in 2011, as the Giants won the division with a 9-7 record, although they lost both games to the last...
