Former Raven LaQuan Williams' Super Bowl ring is up for auction

LaQuan Williams follows in footsteps of Jamal Lewis, Damien Berry and Omar Brown.

Wide receiver LaQuan Williams, the Baltimore native who made the NFL as an undrafted free agent and won a championship with his hometown team, is the latest Raven to put his Super Bowl XLVII ring up for auction.

The ring awarded to Williams, who played at Poly and Maryland before spending parts of three seasons with the Ravens, is up for bid through Goldin Auctions.

The bidding will close in 16 days. The ring has attracted four bids with the current one being for $18,000.

Safety Omar Brown, practice squad running back Damien Berry and former Ravens running back Jamal Lewis, who received a ring from team owner Steve Bisciotti as a member of the team’s Ring of Honor, all auctioned their rings.

Brown’s wound up going for $43,920 in November, while Lewis got $50,820 and Berry’s went for $43,000.

Williams caught four passes for 46 yards in 12 games as a Ravens rookie in 2011. During the Super Bowl season, he didn’t have a catch and injuries limited him to 11 games, but he did play extensively on special teams. He was placed on injured reserve with a hamstring injury in late December and wasn’t active for the Ravens’ Super Bowl run.

Williams was cut by the Ravens late in the 2013 preseason. He was picked up by the New England Patriots but was quickly released. The Ravens re-signed Williams in late April 2014, but he didn’t make the team out of training camp and has been out of football since.
