Hollywood bad boy and Mr. “Winning” himself, Charlie Sheen, finds himself in the headlines once again. This time, for possibly being the buyer of Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl XXV ring at auction earlier this week. It’s reported that Taylor and his agent Mark Leipseiter were informed Wednesday night that the former Two and a Half Men actor bid and paid $230,000 to purchase the ring, however, this has yet to be confirmed.
“The Dan Patrick Show” reached out to Sheen for confirmation, but the actor texted “no comment” in return.
Taylor had originally presented the ring to his son T.J. as a gift, but the younger Taylor decided to put it up for sale, which for some reason didn’t bother LT.
After circulating through various online auctions, current New York Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora offered to buy the ring back for Taylor as a gift if he picked up 500,000 followers on Twitter, but that goal was not met.
