Former LSU star cornerback Morris Claiborne's 2011 SEC championship ring was listed for sale on eBay for $100,000 on Monday. It caused quite a stir on social media, especially among Tigers fans, who were disappointed that Claiborne would auction off such an important piece of his college career.

But fans weren't the only ones surprised to see the ring listed for sale -- Claiborne himself says he was shocked to hear the news, which he discovered on social media.

The Dallas Cowboys corner issued a statement on Tuesday through the LSU sports information department, claiming the ring was stolen and put up for sale without his knowledge.

The location of the item was listed as Shreveport, La. -- Claiborne's hometown. The seller, "brigg.lager" has no record of any other listings or previous transactions.
