Former Steelers practice squad running back Justin Vincent gave four rings, including a national championship ring and Super Bowl ring, to a friend, whom Vincent said was going to place them in a safety deposit box. Those rings were, police believe, stolen from a residence by a person hired to clean that residence.

Former Steelers running back Justin Vincent had four rings stolen earlier this week in Baton Rouge, including his LSU 2004 BCS National Championship ring and his Super Bowl XLIII ring.

Those rings have been found as part of a homicide investigation, according to the Times-Picayune in New Orleans.

Vincent was on the Steelers' practice squad for half of the 2008 season, earning his ring despite not having been on the active roster. He was also the MVP of LSU's National Championship victory over Oklahoma at the end of the 2003 season.

Vincent says he gave the four rings to a friend, who was going to place them in a safety deposit box. The rings were allegedly stolen from the friend's residence. The police took into custody 26-year-old Baton Rouge resident Courtney Henderson on suspicion of stealing the rings when she was hired to clean a house, presumably Vincent's friend's, although the friend's name is not mentioned in the report.

According to ESPN, citing the criminal affidavit, Henderson took the rings because she believed they were left there by the owner, who was in the process of moving out. She was also arrested for possession of marijuana and possession of a firearm with a controlled substance.

It's good he got them back. Regardless of the success of his pro career, very few people can claim to have won both a college national championship and a Super Bowl.

Vincent bounced on and off the Steelers' practice squad between 2007-10, and is out of football. He is currently the Assistant Athletic Director of Player Personnel at LSU and is also the host of the FOX program, Louisiana Sunday Kickoff.
