Many were wowed by the sixth Super Bowl ring distributed by New England Patriots team owner Robert Kraft to his players and team officials. The rings were described as the biggest Super Bowl rings ever created with a total gem carat weight of 9.85 carats, according to its manufacturer Jostens. The company said the ring has an average of 416 round diamonds and six marquise-cut diamonds for a total carat weight of 8.25 carats while the 20 sapphires weigh 1.60 carats. The Patriots logo is prominently featured in the ring using a custom-cut red and blue stone and surrounded by 38 diamonds.

The six Lombardi trophies were created using 123 diamonds and accented with a marquise-cut diamond. The Patriots official website posted photos of the team’s ring ceremony and the players brandishing their latest jewelry. When the NFL official Instagram posted a photo of quarterback Tom Brady displaying his six Super Bowl rings, Cleveland Browns wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. took notice. The wide receiver who was recently traded by the New York Giants to the Browns commented “TIMELESS” to Brady’s photo.

Browns need more work to reach Patriots’ level

Earlier, Beckham drew the ire of former Patriots’ safety Rodney Harrison after the flamboyant wide receiver claimed that he wants to turn the Browns into the “new Patriots.” Harrison said that for the Browns to achieve New England’s achievement, they first need to shut up, just like the “Patriots Way.” Beckham, for his part, clarified his statement, saying the Browns are simply aspiring to be great, like the Patriots.

Beckham added that the Browns need more work before getting to the Patriots’ level. In a recent interview, Beckham expressed his desire to hang banners with the Browns, with the help of their franchise quarterback Baker Mayfield. Last season, the Browns exceeded expectations after they tallied a 7-8-1 mark following a winless year.

Kyle Rudolph trade might not happen -- Schefter

The Patriots currently lack depth at tight end following retirement of Rob Gronkowski, the four-game suspension of veteran Ben Watson and the unexpected release of Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Until Watson returns, Adam LaCosse now occupies the No. 1 slot in the Patriots’ tight end depth chart.

The developments rekindled rumors that New England might pursue Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph. However, Adam Schefter, the possibility of that happening is far-fetched, especially now that Rudolph is open to returning to the Vikings. Also, Schefter said the Vikings’ asking price of a premium pick for Rudolph is too much for the Patriots to accommodate. Earlier, it was reported that Gronkowski might return at some point next season if the Patriots need tight end help.
