Tom Brady's missing Super Bowl LI jersey valued at $500,000


USA TODAY Sports’ Lindsay Jones breaks down how the Patriots managed to pull off a comeback for the ages in Super Bowl LI.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl jersey is valued $500,000 and police are investigating its disappearance as a first-degree felony theft, according to a document made public on Tuesday.

While this is the first time Houston police — the lead investigating agency — has put a value on the stolen jersey, the one-page summary obtained by USA TODAY Sports and other outlets yielded few clues on the progress of two-week-old investigation.

Brady noticed the No. 12 jersey he wore in the Patriots’ Super Bowl LI overtime victory on Feb. 5 had gone missing after he fulfilled his media obligations and returned to his locker at NRG Stadium. Brady had stored the jersey in a holdall bag when he donned a championship T-shirt.

According to the report, police have pinpointed a 50-minute window of when the theft potentially occurred: 9:25-10:15 p.m. local time.

TMZ was the first to report the document’s release on Tuesday.

Authorities have combed through video — although there were no security cameras inside the locker room — to attempt to pinpoint who had access to Brady’s locker.

Investigators from the Houston Police Department major offenders division are working with NFL security and other agencies on the case.
