DENVER -- A monster of a linebacker employed by the Denver Broncos isn't too happy after two burglars were caught red-handed on his hidden security cameras breaking into his home. Police may be the last thing those burglars need to worry about. 

The Denver Broncos employ a few towering, scary individuals, but DeMarcus Ware stands out. He measures at 6-foot-4 and weighs roughly 260 pounds.

Unfortunately -- or fortunately for those who broke in -- Ware wasn't home to impose upon burglars who invaded his house during Monday Night Football.

Ware revealed Tuesday morning his home had been ransacked whilst his team fought it out against the Houston Texans. 

Despite a win on the field, he came home to find personal items missing, prompting a call to police. An NFL source close to Ware confirmed to Denver7's Broncos Insider Troy Renck Tuesday afternoon that the burglars also took Ware's Super Bowl 50 ring.

Ware received the ring in June after winning the Super Bowl, noting it held 194 diamonds, totaling over five karats. Several players confirmed to Renck Tuesday the rings are valued at $31,785. The sentimental value, however, is priceless. 

"Never about the material things for me but my safety," Ware said in a Tweet Tuesday. 

Fortunately for Ware, even if he wasn't there in person, his security cameras caught the whole thing. 

Police in Denver confirmed the burglary, saying they're investigating. They're seeking help from the public. Anybody who can call in a tip to police will be eligible to receive a reward of up to $2,000. 

Tips can be made to the Metro Denver Crime Stoppers group at (720) 913-7867.

Ware is currently recovering from a fractured forearm. He hasn't played in five consecutive games, however he has been a vocal member on the sideline.
