Lynch’s Super Bowl Ring Stolen

Priceless Bucs memento stolen from John Lynch.

Priceless Bucs memento stolen from John Lynch.

John Lynch, who Bucs co-chairman Bryan Glazer said was such an easy decision to induct this fall into the Ring of Honor, spoke today about his honor and mentioned why he wasn’t wearing his Super Bowl ring for the festivities.

He doesn’t have it.

Lynch said the ring he won with the Bucs in the franchise’s lone Super Bowl game (and more importantly, Super Bowl victory) was lifted from him roughly three months ago.

Not to fret too much. Lynch said the ring is being replaced. So it appears he will be able to wear it at his Ring of Honor ceremony during halftime of a yet to be determined home game.

The actual game date will be announced after the 2016 schedule is released, typically just before the draft in April.

    Speaking for Pablo

    “Pablo didn’t do it.”

    Hmmmmm? Pablo?

    Maybe lovie “borrowed” it, you know, to see what it looked like!!!!!

    Just a thought. .. I don’t think we have ever announced the ring of honor inductee this early in the year. Are the Glazers worried that with the way they handled Mr. Lynch when they cut him he may decide to go into the hall of fame as a Bronco? I hope not. When he returned to Tampa as a Bronco my family was at the game. He was the last player off the field. I know this because we were the last fans in the stands. He never wanted to leave Tampa and he should have been allowed to finish here. It was a travesty that we cut him after he played half the year with a separated shoulder.

    Yep it was lovie. Dammit he was gonna get a ring one way or the other

  8. Dave Pear Says:

    Lovie got a ring with St. Louis.
    It was definitely Sapp.
    Watch a future episode of Pawn Stars.
    Sapp will be trying to sell this ring.

    @dave pear

    lovie lost the superbowl with st. louis!!!!

  10. Dave Pear Says:

    I stand corrected.
    Then there are two suspects in this mystery.
    I’m still going with Sapp.
    Love just got $10 million.

    My cousin keeps his in a safe in his house. I only saw it once, when I got to wear it. That’s the last time I saw that sucker.

    I’m still jealous of him, because for every Ring of Honor ceremony he gets to go to the banquet and the party involved. Gets to come out onto the field again.

    All that for throwing a ball between his legs. smh

  12. BucTrooper Says:

    I think Lynch is getting in the HOF. Too much of a coincidence.

  13. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    Joes, when you said that the ring “was lifted from him roughly three months ago.” Does that mean that the thief “was rough” with Lynch when he stole it from him three years ago? Was this a mugging at gunpoint??LOL!😛😜

  14. Pawel Says:

    He sold it

  15. Howard Cosell Says:

    Give it back, Pablo.

  16. Trubucfan22 Says:

    I just lost a little bit of respect for lynch…. How you let the most prized possession in your life get taken from you is beyond me. It’s one thing to sell it. But to let it get stolen, that is pathetic.

    It was a hooker in Vegas

  18. SteveK Says:

    John Lynch is an absolute boss. He needs to make the hall of fame.

    Lynch could hit the sh!t out of you, and he also is Stanford educated. Lynch also played baseball and had a 95 mph fastball. Impressive.

  19. LifeOfABucFan Says:

    The comments are the best part of the story! Thanks for the laugh 🙂

    @John Herb,
    NFL isn’t like baseball. You go in as an individual, not as a member of any particular team so Glazers didn’t have to worry about that.

  21. John Herb Says:

    Thanks @ Tampamac. I didn’t know that. I have a friend who grew up 5 minutes from the HOF and he explained how every team has a section and ours is mostly denoting bad stats. The Lynch era has been a highlight for us and as a long term fan I think I always look on the dark side for our team out of habit . When we win it is that much sweeter. Hence my run down Dearborn St. In Englewood after the 2002 Super Bowl with my entire family crying my eyes out and hugging strangers. Aah good times! Here’s to next year. . GO BUCS!

    i predict they’ll honor him at the raiders game. a rematch of that fateful game, and also a game that is not likely to sell out on its own merits unless both teams are contending towards the back part of the season
