Former Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel won three Super Bowls while a member of the New England Patriots.

But he doesn’t have any of his rings from Super Bowl XXXVI, XXXVIII and XXXIX.

Vrabel, who is now a linebackers coach with the Houston Texans, tweeted today: “To all the Houston area pawn shops: 3 super bowl rings are headed your way.”

I’d run the entire tweet, but Vrabel used a not-so-nice word to describe the person or people who helped them to his rings.

But here is his wife’s tweet:

Jen Vrabel also noted that the crooks will have a difficult time selling the rings:

Vrabel played for the Chiefs in 2009-10 before retiring.

According to ESPN, the Bellaire, Texas, police department said the burglary took place around 11 a.m. Saturday.
