Lt. Gov Asks Texas Rangers To Help Find Tom Brady’s Stolen Jersey
Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick has asked the Texas Rangers to help Houston police find Tom Brady’s jersey that went missing after the New England Patriots quarterback won his fifth Super Bowl.
“In Texas we place a very high value on hospitality and football,” Lt. Gov. Patrick said in a press release put out by his office Monday afternoon, KHOU.com reports.
“Tom Brady’s jersey has great historical value and is already being called the most valuable NFL collectable ever. It will likely go into the Hall of Fame one day,” Patrick stated. “It is more 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 continued, “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.”
Amid the chaos of celebrating a historic Super Bowl victory, the Patriots star quarterback realized that the jersey he wore during the game had disappeared from a bag he left in the locker room.

Brady confirmed that his jersey was still missing on Monday during his MVP news conference.
“I put it in my bag, and then I came out and it wasn’t there anymore. So it’s unfortunate, ’cause that’s a nice piece of memorabilia,” the Super Bowl MVP said.
Hopefully the now five-time Super Bowl Champion will soon have his jersey returned. It certainly won’t hurt to have the Texas Rangers on the case.
