Former Green Bay Packers wide receiver Antonio Freeman doesn't get many opportunities to show off his Super Bowl XXXI ring anymore.

While chatting with ESPN's SportsNation on Tuesday, Freeman revealed the ring no longer fits because the majority of his fingers were broken or dislocated as a result of catching passes from Brett Favre.

Freeman isn't the only ex-Packer whose fingers Favre mangled. Robert Brooks once told ESPN that he had to get his wedding ring resized because Favre broke his finger multiple times.

"Brett's got a bullet for an arm. It's tough," Brooks said. "I've broken a lot of fingers messing with that guy. I had to get my wedding ring custom-fitted and I'm waiting for it to come back right now because Brett broke my ring finger about three times, the same finger. He takes pride in that. He chalks up how many fingers he gets during training camp."
