Texas Lt. Gov. Has Asked Texas Rangers To Help Find Tom Brady’s Jersey

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick is asking the Texas Rangers to help locate Tom Brady’s missing jersey, which disappeared from the New England Patriots locker room after the Super Bowl.

The Republican said in a statement Monday that Brady’s jersey “was stolen” after the Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 at Houston’s NRG Stadium, and that city police were already investigating.

Patrick released a statement:

“Tom Brady’s jersey has great historical value and is already being called ‘the most valuable NFL collectible ever,” Patrick said in a statement. “It will likely go into the Hall of Fame one day. It is important that history does not record that it was stolen in Texas. I’ve called Colonel Steve McCraw to ask that the Texas Rangers work with the Houston Police Department on this case.”

“I’m a Texans and Cowboys fan first,” Patrick said, “but the unquestionable success of the Super Bowl in Houston last night was a big win for our entire state and I don’t want anything to mar that victory. Whoever took this jersey should turn it in. The Texas Rangers are on the trail.”

Brady said after the game that the jersey was missing and joked that he expects to see it soon on an online auction.
