UPDATE 3:55 P.M. EST: Have no fear! Some reports are saying Tom’s jersey WASN’T stolen after all, but was put in a locked closet by the team’s equipment manager for safe keeping. Smart choice!
We’ll keep you updated as we hear more!
Every high must have a low!
While the MVP didn’t appear flustered about the swiped jersey when chatting with the businessman, reports claim the American athlete looked visibly upset when he searched the locker room with teammate Jimmy Garoppolo for the article of clothing.
Reportedly, Brady told those in the room:
“It was right here. I know exactly where I put it…This is not good. was right here and now I don’t have it. Not good.”
Poor guy! Gisele Bundchen‘s husband seems to be dealing with the loss as he later joked the jersey would likely be on “eBay” soon.
Not to mention, the 39-year-old has yet file a police report. The NFL’s security detail is said to be taking the lead on this theft case.
The Houston Police Department revealed to TMZ that they’ve been in contact with the football organization, but have yet to start their own investigation. Of course, if the thief is caught, they could be looking at some serious repercussions. Supposedly, the uniform is being valued at tens of thousands of dollars — and due to this valuation, the case could become a felony grand larceny crime one!
Unfortunately, the jersey may be gone forever as the football stud indicated it was “lost” and called it a “nice piece of memorabilia” during Monday’s press conference. He later added:
“What can you do? I’ll take the ring, and that’s good enough for me.”
It’s good Tom isn’t letting a missing uniform spoil his big win. Congrats again to Tom and all of the other Patriots!
