According to the announcer on 105.7 the fan, he doesn't have to be on the payroll to get a ring
Winning a Super Bowl can make everyone suddenly generous and forgiving. I could see Bisciotti and Harbaugh saying, "yeah, let's give Cam his ring." The question is, would Cameron accept it? If it was me, I'd pass on it because if you didn't want me on the team, then I have no desire to take some token gesture of reconciliation. It would be very empty to me. But that's me. Maybe Cameron would see things differently and isn't as bitter about the situation as one might think. Who knows, maybe Harbaugh still keeps in touch with him. I don't think the play calling has been that radically different under Caldwell. The biggest change has been the improved play of the offensive line and Flacco finally having time to plant his feet and throw the ball. Cameron didn't have that luxury.
Then we'll see Cam on "Pawn Stars" with Rick and his expert checking to see if the ring is real.
According to Wikipedia... and you can't put anything on the internet if it's not true...
The league pays for 150 rings per winning team. The team can pay for additional rings above and beyond that. Assuming the 150 "free" number is correct, virtually everybody at "The Castle" would likely get one if they win, including administrative assistants, etc. The practice squad, guys who went on & off the roster during the season, etc. They would probably give them to the broadcast team, some media members, even some major advertisers / sponsors. So it's not crazy to think that Bisciotti would offer one to Cam.
My wife has a Superbowl diamond that came from a Colts SB 5 title ring. The person she inherited it from was never even a paid member of the organization in any capacity that year, or any other year.
