HOUSTON — Tom Brady believes he was robbed.

Shortly after pulling off one of the most remarkable comebacks in Super Bowl history, the New England Patriots quarterback pulled off his game-worn jersey, and he suspects someone made off with it.

“It was right here. I know exactly where I put it,” Brady told security staff and equipment team managers, according to USA Today Sports.

Brady appeared to be “flustered” as he searched the Patriots’ locker room at NRG Stadium, a short time after New England won its fifth Super Bowl in seven tries under Brady and Bill Belichick with a 34-28 overtime victory over the Atlanta Falcons.

“This is not good,” Brady was heard saying. “It was right here and now I don’t have it. Not good.”

As he was leaving the stadium, Brady, who was named the Super Bowl MVP for a record fourth time, was asked if he had found the missing jersey,

“No,” he said. “It is going to be on eBay soon, I guess.”
