Dexter Manley get's his ring back

Manley's Super Bowl ring now symbol of 2 victories | Houston & Texas News | Chron.com - Houston Chronicle

Thought you guys would enjoy this story about Dexter and his first Super Bowl ring which he once pawned in order to by cocaine. Now after all these years the rings former caretaker, a deceased lawyer with whom Dexter entrusted the ring, and Mrs. Manley finally think he's ready to reclaim the memento.

Well, I don't enjoy that one of our greatest players did something like that, but I'm glad he's back on track.

Forget the ring, I'm glad he got his life back. It's good when you have friends like the one he had, they're not often in life. Good for Dexter, I'm always happy when there's a positive story about him.

I would love to see the Skins give his son a chance at trying out and making the team.

I'll bet no one would love that any more than Dexter himself. We're talking about the son of a man who absolutely loved the Redskins.

With a 4.5 40 time, we should make him a gunner on special teams. Much more intmidating than little Tryon or Westy-lite.

Glad to hear he's been sober for a few years; hopefully he can keep it behind him, it won't be easy. Never knew he was cousins with Eric Dickerson.
