Last week, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft claimed Russian President Vladimir Putin stole his Super Bowl XXXIX ring while speaking to a crowd at the Waldorf Astoria in New York.

A spokesman for Putin called Kraft's story "weird" and claimed the ring was a gift from Kraft during his 2005 meeting with Putin. Now, a newly minted Super Bowl champion is weighing in on the case of the Putin-Kraft ring controversy.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was exiting a nightclub in Los Angeles this weekend and was questioned by paparazzi about Kraft's stolen ring story. Suggs said he would "get it right back" and when the paparazzi reporter retorted that Putin was a "scary guy," Suggs said he, too, knew a lot of "scary" guys.

When asked if he was wearing his Super Bowl ring, Suggs said his ring is safe with his father.

Kraft's story:

“I took out the ring and showed it to [Putin], and he put it on and he goes, ‘I can kill someone with this ring,’ ” Kraft told the crowd at Carnegie Hall’s Medal of Excellence gala at the Waldorf-Astoria, according to the Post.“I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out.”
