Cardinals tight end Todd Heap is coming off a disappointing 2011 season that cemented his place on the downside of the old career trajectory arc.

Heap should be pleased to know that his name still counts for something in Maryland, where he played the first 10 years of his career and made two Pro Bowls as a member of the Ravens. A football signed by Heap was stolen from a home in Towson earlier this week, along with a replica of the Ravens’ Super Bowl ring, and the person responsible has been arrested and charged with first-degree burglary and petty theft.

The Baltimore Sun reports that the alleged robber, a juvenile, cut through the screen to enter the back porch of a home in an area named, fittingly enough, Loch Raven Village. Once inside, the robber “ransacked and destroyed” the house and made off with the Heap keepsake and ring. Police found both items at the accused burglar’s house when they made the arrest.

By now you’re probably asking yourself if PFT has been taken over for the day by a band of petty crime enthusiasts. The answer is no. We hope that you will look back at this post while watching Heap have a bad moment during this season and use it as a reminder that this world has someone willing to risk a criminal record for the chance to possess a football with his signature.

    This is blasphemy! This is madness! This is that period right before training camp when there is nothing to talk about!
