    Tom Brady thinks his Super Bowl jersey has been picked off, and the Texas Rangers have been asked to go after it.

    The Patriots quarterback, selected the MVP of New England's 34-28 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday night, couldn't find his game-worn No. 12 jersey in the locker room after the big win. He told a Patriots equipment manager that he remembered placing it in his locker, adding that "someone stole it."

    After looking through his bags to no avail, Brady told owner Robert Kraft that "someone stole my game jersey." Kraft told Brady: "You better look online."

    While Brady walked to the team bus, a reporter asked the quarterback if he had recovered the jersey. Brady said he hadn't and added: "Yeah, it's going to be on eBay at some point."

    And despite a report that the jersey was found, Brady said Monday morning that it was still missing.

    "I put it in my bag and I came out and it wasn't there any more," he said a news conference.

    Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick on Monday asked the Texas Rangers to assist the Houston Police Department in tracking the jersey down.

    "Tom Brady's jersey has great historical value and is already being called 'the most valuable NFL collectable 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."
