Mike Vrabel's Patriots Super Bowl rings stolen from home
Saturday November 8th, 2014

Former New England Patriots linebacker Mike Vrabel says his three Super Bowl rings were stolen from his home.

Vrabel, now a linebackers coach for the Houston Texans, was a key member of the Pats' 2001, 2002, and 2004 Super Bowl wins. Though he was listed at linebacker, he was occasionally used on the offensive side of the ball. In Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX, Vrabel caught touchdown passes from quarterback Tom Brady.

In 2007, Vrabel was selected to the Pro Bowl after recording a career-high 12.5 sacks and five forced fumbles. In 2009, he was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs. Vrabel retired from the league two years later to become a linebackers coach at Ohio State.
