Patriots safety Rodney Harrison received an elite ranking as one of the top NFL safeties.
The Boston Herald's "Inside Track" reports that Patriots fan, Jim Shaw has started a web site, www.replacebobsring.com which is raising money from fan donations to purchase a new super bowl ring for Patriots owner Robert Kraft. Kraft recently presented his ring to President Putin of Russia as a gift to the Russian people. Apparently, fans feal Kraft should not be 'blingless. "I thought it might be appropriate if the people of New England wanted to donate a buck or two we'd get him a new one and present it to him from the fans. It would be a way to show the guy that we appreciate what he does," said Shaw. The Patriots are not affiliated or involved with this group.
