The Miami Dolphins' defensive end realized after practice Tuesday afternoon that one of his 2.5-carat diamond earrings had fallen out while he was working out on the field. Following the training session, Langford and nine other teammates, along with the grounds crew began the treasure hunt.
What added to the challenge of the search is that the Dolphins have been practicing on two fields during training, so Langford and his small search party were spread across both practice areas. Langford even borrowed a few rakes from the grounds crew in hopes of rustling it out of the field, but the uninsured earring was not found.
"I forgot I had it on," Langford told reporters when he left the field. "I'm going to go to meetings and then come back out here."
Langford left the search after an hour, leaving the grounds crew in charge while he went inside the practice facility for a mandatory team meeting. A meeting in which he said would cost him even more money if he missed it.
The defensive end would not disclose how much the diamond was worth. However, his teammate Ryan Baker described it as a "fat diamond." A local jewelry distributor told reporters that the diamond could be worth more than $50,000.
