Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl ring sold for $230K; Osi Umenyiora was not the buyer

Lawrence Taylor’s Super Bowl XXV ring was sold at auction for more than $230,000 to a buyer who wasn’t New York Giants star Osi Umenyiora.

The Giants defensive end had vowed to buy LT’s ring and return it to him if he was able to reach 500,000 followers on Twitter. Umenyiora fell far short of his goal. His account, @osiumenyiora, had just over 55,000 followers by the Saturday night deadline.
