Miami Dolphins' Kendall Langford Loses $50,000 Earring During Practice

Daniel GoochAnalyst ISeptember 1, 2010

Several Miami Dolphins were crawling across the field after practice Tuesday—not because of exhaustion, but because they were looking for a $56,000 diamond earring.

Defensive end Kendall Langford forgot to remove his earrings before practice, and then lost one during a training drill.

Around nine of his teammates helped out. Some were on hands and knees, while others used rakes to comb through the turf. Unfortunately the team had a lot of ground to cover as they practice on two fields.

Langford was thankful for the help, saying, "I've got a great group of guys out here helping me—family-type guys."

He declined to say how much the 2.5 carat earring cost but one jewellery distributor said it was worth around $56,000.

Teammate Ryan Baker helped Kendall and said, "He's a teammate. That's what you do. It's a fat diamond. It's a shame."

Miami coach Tony Sparano, stopped to watch the hunt for the earring but didn't lend a hand. He said that he has never lost earrings at practice, during a game, or anywhere else.

"I can't afford them," he joked.

Unfortunately for Langford, he had to stop the search as he was due at a team meeting, plus the grounds crew had started mowing the grass.

Maybe he will remember to take them out next time.
