Mike Vrabel, who is currently the linebackers coach with the Houston Texans, had his Super Bowl rings from his playing days with the New England Patriots stolen from his home. 

According to a tweet sent out by Vrabel, which contains language that is not safe for work, burglars smashed in the back door of his Houston home and made out with the rings. He doesn't mention if anything else was taken. 

While Vrabel's anger is certainly justified, the good news is it doesn't appear as if anyone was harmed during the incident. The former linebacker wouldn't mind tackling someone right now.

During his time with the Patriots, Vrabel won three championships and appeared in all but three games over eight years. He was traded to Kansas City following the 2008 season and retired after two years with the Chiefs. He went on to become the linebackers coach at Ohio State for two years before taking his current job.
