Former Canadian Football League defensive lineman Eddie Steele is asking for help from the people in the City of Champions.

Steele tweeted on Wednesday morning: ATTENTION EDMONTON. My car was broken into last night in south Edmonton and they stole my 2015 Grey Cup Ring that was locked in the glove compartment. PLEASE, PLEASE spread the word and if anyone can help I’d REALLY appreciate it!

Following Steele’s social media post, current Elks president Victor Cui replied: please DM me and I will buy you a new replacement ring.

The 33-year-old played eight seasons in the three-down league, four with Edmonton, winning a CFL championship with Chris Jones in green and gold in 2015. He made two tackles in a 26-20 win over Ottawa at IG Field in Winnipeg in front of 36,634 fans.

Steele suited up in 123 games while making 145 tackles, 18 sacks, three special teams tackles, one interception and forced one fumble. The six-foot-two, 280-pound defensive lineman was selected in the third round, 22nd overall during the 2010 CFL Draft.
