AURORA, Ill., March 30 (UPI) -- Two rings stolen from Chicago Bears great Walter Payton have been recovered after two men tried to pawn them, police say.

The rings, one of which Payton was given when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1993 and the other a $2,000 replica of his Super Bowl XX prize, were stolen from the glass case at Walter Payton's Roundhouse restaurant in Aurora sometime between 3 and 10 p.m. Monday.

The suspects allegedly took the rings to a Chicago pawnshop where they got $150, the Aurora Beacon News reported. The dealer recognized the jewelry and called police.
