Last week, New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft claimed Russian President Vladimir Putin stole his Super Bowl XXXIX ring while speaking to a crowd at the Waldorf Astoria in New York.

A spokesman for Putin called Kraft’s story “weird” and claimed the ring was a gift from Kraft during his 2005 meeting with Putin. Now, a newly minted Super Bowl champion is weighing in on the case of the Putin-Kraft ring controversy.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was exiting a nightclub in Los Angeles this weekend and was questioned by paparazzi about Kraft’s stolen ring story. Suggs said he would “get it right back” and when the paparazzi reporter retorted that Putin was a “scary guy,” Suggs said he, too, knew a lot of “scary” guys.

When asked if he was wearing his Super Bowl ring, Suggs said his ring is safe with his father.

Kraft’s story:

“I took out the ring and showed it to [Putin], and he put it on and he goes, ‘I can kill someone with this ring,’ ” Kraft told the crowd at Carnegie Hall’s Medal of Excellence gala at the Waldorf-Astoria, according to the Post.“I put my hand out and he put it in his pocket, and three KGB guys got around him and walked out.”

The best question that reporter could ask was about Bob Kraft's ring??

Reading the article made Suggs sound like an idiot but when the video just looked kind of like a silly hypothetical conversation where he was pretty much led into all of his answers.

It's finally happened: Suggs has surpassed James Harrison as the dumbest player in the NFL.

Why is an NFL owner hanging out with Russian politicians? Did all the Korean dictators and Colombian drug lords have other plans?

No worry Suggs. You would never be invited to be around him.

Hey Terrell, you might want to temper your words when Vladimir Putin is the topic of conversation. While you're famous for kicking women around; "Candace Williams claimed that Suggs punched her in the neck and dragged her alongside a car he was driving while their two children sat inside," Putin is a genuine bad*** and he'll have you rubbed you out in a heartbeat. You are such a big mouth punk.
