When you win championships over and over, maybe they lose their value.
The New England Patriots have the most Super Bowl appearances in the history of the NFL and are tied for the most titles with the Pittsburgh Steelers. With the Patriots winning three Lombardi Trophies in the last five seasons, you might expect the chase, and the reward, of a championship to get boring.
One Patriot is clearly over the bling that comes with the title of champion and is said to be selling his Super Bowl LI ring online.
That price would probably be a bit higher if they didn't contend for a championship every single year.
It's definitely intriguing to think who this could've been. Could it be someone who has won a million rings like Rob Gronkowski or someone who couldn't care less about his time with the franchise and wants to put it behind him while adding a little coin in the process?
By comparing the current roster to that of the Super Bowl LI roster when New England took down the Falcons, Malcolm Mitchell, Michael Floyd, Danny Amendola, Martellus Bennett, Dion Lewis, LeGarrette Blount, DJ Foster, Jimmy Garoppolo, Jacoby Brissett, Nate Solder, Malcolm Butler, and more have all left the Patriots. It could be anyone's guess at who it is.

Not everyone is like Tom Brady and plans on playing until forever. Winning these rings over and over seems like it lost its lust for at least one person.
