New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady won his fifth Super Bowl, leading his team to the biggest comeback in Super Bowl history and earning his fourth Super Bowl MVP along the way. He led his team past the Atlanta Falcons and generally had a fantastic evening, but it was hampered by the fact that he had his jersey stolen.
Brady has spoken out about wanting some help finding it from fans. He’s hoping it will turn up and somebody will have some kind of information about it. These things can be awfully important to NFL players.
Internet sleuthing can be dangerous, and nobody should point a definitive finger in any direction without knowing for certain, but Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network did uncover a very interesting Instagram post on Monday afternoon. That post included a fan holding a Brady jersey that appeared to be a little roughed up and the appropriate size.

But the main thing is the person used the hashtag “#stolehisjersey” which seems pretty damning. Folks really should not contact this person because, if this was just a silly use of a hashtag, it’s not worth the headache that comes from something like that.
Then again … if this person did steal the jersey, and he gets busted because he used a hashtag on Instagram? That would be hilarious and amazing in so many ways.
