Lawrence Taylor, it turns out, isn’t selling his Super Bowl XXV ring. His son, T.J., is.
Mark Sepselter, Taylor’s agent, clarified the matter, telling Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, “Lawrence was in fact unaware of it, but said he gave it to T.J. and it’s his right to do what he wants with it. He's fine with whatever T.J. decided.”
Lepselter added that, when told about the auction, L.T. responded, “What the [expletive] are you talking about?”
Bidding on the ring had reached $89,568 by Friday morning. It is accompanied by a letter of authenticity signed by T.J. Taylor and will also be accompanied by a letter from Taylor, saying he’d given his son the ring.
