For a guy pining for more money, New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora has waged an intriguing campaign to return Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl XXV ring to him.

The Giants Hall of Famer’s ring is being auctioned off by his son T.J., who he gave the ring to as a gift. The bidding for the ring is already up to $108,378, with eight hours remaining.

Umenyiora has plans to honor LT by returning the ring to the legendary Giant—with a catch.

Umenyiora has made an offer on his Twitter to all of his followers that, should he be able to reach 500,000 followers—originally set at 1,000,000—by 10:00 p.m. ET on Saturday, he will purchase the ring and give it back to Taylor. When he has reached that goal, one lucky follower—chosen at random—will have the opportunity to present LT with the ring in person.




With around 40,000 followers at the time of this article’s posting, Giants fans have their work cut out for them if they wish to get the ring back in LT’s possession.

So, if you do not already, follow Osi Umenyiora on Twitter and spread the news to your friends. There are only a few hours remaining before LT’s ring lands in the hands of a fanatic with an awful lot of cash to spend on elusive sports memorabilia in this economy.
