Wife of Saints owner finds reporter's lost ring

Updated:

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - The wife of New Orleans Saints owner Tom Benson found a newspaper reporter's engagement ring after the team's 26-20 loss to the New York Jets.

Gayle Benson was in the women's restroom in the MetLife Stadium press box Sunday when she spotted the ring on a counter. She gave it to stadium security and later found out it belonged to Newsday's Jets beat writer, Kimberley Martin.

Martin removed the ring to wash her hands and forgot to put it back on. A relieved Martin, engaged to Bergen Record sportswriter Jeff Roberts, was "incredibly grateful" when told the ring was recovered.

Benson wished Martin "many blessings" and added she should always keep her ring on. "Better to get soap on it than lose it," she said in a message to Martin.
