Buffalo Bills player's house robbed on gameday
Police are investigating a theft from the home of Buffalo Bills safety Donte Whitner, who discovered about $400,000 worth of jewelry missing following Sunday's win against Tampa Bay.

"It's mind-boggling," said the player's spokeswoman Patrice Horton, who described Whitner as upset and hurt. "He's safe, but he's on high alert. He doesn't know who did this."

Hamburg Detective Lt. Kevin Trask released few details because of the ongoing investigation. He would not say whether there was evidence of a forced entry or when the theft might have happened.

The theft was reported at about 10 p.m., a little over two hours after the Bills won their home-opener, 33-20.

"At this point we're calling it a larceny," he said. "We can't even call it a burglary because we don't know the specifics. This might be a person who was invited into the home."

He did not identify Whitner as the victim, confirming only that the theft was at the home of a Bills player.

didn't Sean Taylor wear a golfball-sized ear stud that by itself was worth like $200,000??

6. very tragic
i remember when Taylor was drafted and was a big fan...my dad and i were certain he had a chance for the HOF someday...

i'm glad they caught the shooters, but the more i've read about the case, the less sense it made...
