NEW YORK (WFAN) – Justin Tuck wanted his Super Bowl champion teammates to see their prize from Tiffany’s first.
So when Giants linebacker Clint Sintim and running back Andre Brown tweeted photos of the previously unseen Super Bowl ring in March, Tuck quickly questioned the jewelry’s authenticity. Ditto when punter Steve Weatherford posted a different image of the same ring this week to his Twitter page.
Turns out it was the real thing — and Tuck still isn’t happy.
“I didn’t want everybody that didn’t have anything to do with Giants Nation to be seeing the ring before we had 95 percent of our players seeing the ring,” Tuck said Wednesday, according to the New York Daily News.
The Giants received their championship rings Wednesday night, and Tuck was even talking “dynasty.” But the defensive end certainly would’ve been happier had the unauthorized photos never surfaced.
After the first leak, Tuck said on Twitter that the ring was still a work in progress. Tuck insisted to the Newark Star-Ledger, “ya’ll got the wrong picture … that’s not our ring,” after Weatherford’s tweet seemed to confirm the design.
“I really think that was unfair,” Tuck told the Daily News. “And I wish I knew who dropped it and leaked the ring because I will have some choice words for him too.”
