Giants' Super Bowl ring to have 1.5 carats in diamonds

The New York Giants unveiled the design of their Super Bowl 
championship ring on Tuesday, a white gold sparkler that will 
feature about 1.5 carats in diamonds. The new ring will even 
make seven-time Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Strahan happy.
Shortly after New York won the championship with a 17-14 win 
over the previously undefeated New England Patriots, Strahan 
said he wanted a "10-table ring." Loosely defined: He wanted 
a ring that could be seen 10 tables away in a restaurant.
"There was some discussion about maybe one of the rings was 
too big," said center Shaun O'Hara, who was among group of
players and team executives who designed the ring with 
officials from Tiffany and Co. "I threw out the fact that it 
was a big win, it was a huge win, so the ring should be 
designed accordingly," O'Hara said. "Michael said it best when 
he said he wanted a 10-table ring. I think everybody is going 
to be very pleased with the design. It is very clean, very 
classy, but at the same time it is very strong." The ring's top 
is covered in diamonds and features three Super Bowl trophies 
accented with marquise diamonds signifying the Giants' Super
 Bowl XXI, XXV and XLII victories. The team's "NY" logo is in 
bead set round diamonds, while "World Champions" is emblazoned 
in raised letters on the top and bottom bezel, with channel 
set diamonds on left and right bezel. The ring's shanks 
celebrate the Giants' season, noting the team's "Eleven 
Straight on the Road," an NFL record; the NFL shield; and 
player name, along with player number in raised letters appear 
on one shank. The final score, "Super Bowl XLII," date and 
'AZ' appear on the other shank. Giants spokesman Pat Hanlon 
would not disclose the price of the ring. Tiffany has previously 
created Super Bowl championship rings for the Washington Redskins 
and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The company annually creates the NFL 
Vince Lombardi Super Bowl Trophy at its workshop in Parsippany, 
about 30 minutes from Giants Stadium. The rings will be 
presented to the Giants players and coaches at a ceremony 
later in the spring.

Browns re-sign McKinney to one-year deal

Versatile offensive lineman Seth McKinney has signed a one-
year contract with the Cleveland Browns. McKinney won the 
starting right guard's job last year and started eight games 
before he was sidelined by a shoulder injury. He was replaced 
by Ryan Tucker, who moved over from tackle after serving a 
four-game suspension. The 315-pound McKinney has played on 
both sides of the ball as well as at center during a six-year 
NFL career. "With versatility as a guard and center, this 
signing should solidify the interior part of our offensive 
line," Browns general manager Phil Savage said in a statement 
Friday. "At this point, we feel we have seven starters competing 
for five positions." McKinney was originally drafted by Miami 
in the third round in 2002. He played in all 16 games in each 
of his first three seasons with the Dolphins. He missed the 
entire '06 season with a neck injury before he signed with the 
Browns as a free agent before the 2007 season.

Cardinals bring in QB St. Pierre, re-sign DB Ware

The Arizona Cardinals signed quarterback Brian St. Pierre to 
a one-year contract and re-signed safety Matt Ware on Monday.
St. Pierre was the third-string quarterback for the Pittsburgh 
Steelers last season. He was a fifth-round draft pick by 
Pittsburgh out of Boston College in 2003. He was with the 
Steelers for two seasons and appeared in one game before going 
to Baltimore in 2005. He rejoined the Steelers in 2006.
Ware appeared in 15 games for Arizona last season, with 12 
tackles on defense and seven on special teams. He was claimed 
off waivers from Philadelphia on Sept. 3, 2006, and played in 
14 games, one as a starter in 2006. Ware was a third-round 
draft pick of the Eagles out of UCLA in 2004.
