Tamron 70-200mm f2.8, aperture ring?

Hello all, I have kind of a silly question but I couldn't find a definite answer on my own so I'm turning to y'all.
To the best of your knowledge, has this lens ever been made with an aperture ring?
I know Sigma made one or two of these lenses with one before going ringless, but I cannot find anything on the Tamron.
Thanks if you can help!

The current version of the lens does not have a ring (far right):

Thanks Adam, I know the current one doesn't have one, but has there ever been one with it (much like the previous Sigmas)?
