Robert Kraft believes Tom Brady’s jersey “will be back”

Patriots owner Robert Kraft made the morning-show rounds on Monday. When not discussing the decision of six players (and counting) to boycott the trip to the White House, he was addressing the disappearance of quarterback Tom Brady’s Super Bowl LI jersey.

The situation has had the stink of foul play from the get go; it’s clear from his comments that Kraft agrees.

“It’s very sad to me that someone would do something like this, and it’s like taking a great Chagall or Picasso or something,” Kraft told FOX Business Network’s Mornings with Maria on Monday. “You can never display it. And somehow, I feel there’ll be some news that’ll clear this up in the not too distant future. . . . I hope it’ll be cleared up soon.

“I think that a lot of people spend a lot of time looking into the matter and what happened, and I’d rather not say anything that would cause any problems in the work that’s been done. One way or another that jersey will be back.”

Last week, TMZ reported that the jersey possibly would be found on a truck that was hauling team equipment from Houston back to Boston. There has been no further word regarding whether the 18-wheeler did or didn’t contain the item.

The truck leak felt like an effort to give the perpetrator a chance to unload the item with no further scrutiny. If that didn’t happen, the search for the culprit will continue.

    Just like Kraft’s Super Bowl ring that Putin has “will be back.”

  2. patfanken says: Feb 13, 2017 11:59 AM

    An easy solution would be to declare publically that the shirt has been found, and Brady identified it. Then it would make his real jersey worthless if someone tried to sell it, because it could never be authenticated.

    BTW- Bobby has as much chance of the jersey REALLY turning up as he has that Putin will give him back his ring. 😀

    What a bizarre and inexplicable comment.

  8. marvsleezy says: Feb 13, 2017 12:12 PM

    It was in the bottom of Bradys duffel bag. He found it the next day, but hes too embarrassed to admit it. Could you blame him?

  9. jimmysee says: Feb 13, 2017 12:15 PM

    Tr*mp stuffed it under his coat.

  10. winningisabrees says: Feb 13, 2017 12:15 PM

    Same as that ring, right

  11. ipdaily69 says: Feb 13, 2017 12:16 PM

    Edelman swaddles himself in the jersey every night

  12. weepingjebus says: Feb 13, 2017 12:16 PM

    Meanwhile, local garbage men keep returning Matty Ice’s jersey no matter how many times he puts it on the curb.

  13. reprob8 says: Feb 13, 2017 12:17 PM

    unless 100% of sale proceeds goes to charity, it’s just wealthy guy making more money.

    I’m waiting for a photoshop wizard to create the a of Putin wearing the jersey and the ring

  14. ikeclanton says: Feb 13, 2017 12:17 PM

    Chippy has it.

    It’s hanging in his childhood bedroom where as we speak, he and Ray Finkle are throwing darts at it while his mom bakes little football cookies.

  15. fanfrommontreal says: Feb 13, 2017 12:20 PM

    It’s a jersey, no different from any other Patriot jersey, it’s not an invaluable work of art, the genius was the guy wearing it and he is safe and sound so can we move on to something more serious?

  16. amanistumor says: Feb 13, 2017 12:31 PM

    It’s probably already hanging in Goodell’s office.

    So no, it won’t be back Mr. Kraft.

    Putin probably has that too.

  19. abninf says: Feb 13, 2017 12:36 PM

    It was probably another player who stole it. An upstanding citizen who was robbing gas stations in high school before they became a football star.

  20. biggs13 says: Feb 13, 2017 12:40 PM

    Burn it.

  21. thecape15 says: Feb 13, 2017 12:41 PM

    Trump should get Mr Kraft’s ring back from his buddy.

    And the jersey belongs in the Patriots HOF.

    Because its “not missing”. Just another NFL bogus story… yawn

  24. LET5 GOOOOO! GO PATRIOT5 says: Feb 13, 2017 12:47 PM

    So Kraft is in negotiations with the league office to get it back after their goods stole it. Sounds about what I would expect from the league. I’m sure Goodell is holding it hostage until Kraft publicly finger wags the clown tshirt that Matt Patricia was wearing

  25. harrisonhits2 says: Feb 13, 2017 12:50 PM

    “it’s like taking a great Chagall or Picasso or something,”

    Uh no, its not a priceless work of art. Its a freaking jersey SMH

  26. RandyinRoxbury says: Feb 13, 2017 12:55 PM

    Why hasn’t the FBI been brought in as of yet?
    Us Pats fans need this solved asap, bet that no good Roger is involved somehow. Grrrrrrr

    And those are just paintings by guys. If someone didn’t tell you they were valuable, you wouldn’t know it. So, at least you saw what the guy wearing the jersey did.

  31. purpleguy says: Feb 13, 2017 1:18 PM

    It’s just a damn jersey — it’s not like the Dead Sea Scrolls were stolen. . . . .

    Estimated to be worth $500,000.

    Who knows if the value will ever be the same if it is found…

  33. holidlove says: Feb 13, 2017 1:44 PM

    Even if it’s “found,” I can’t imagine it could be verified. $500k seems like a stretch, though, looking at jersey sale numbers, historically. Then again, it’s worth whatever someone’s willing to pay.

    But we all know, if it shows up, Brady’s keeping it.

    Don’t’ worry – no one has caught on. I’ll keep it a secret. Keep up the good work!

    ——————————–

    Actually a good ploy would be to use Patricia’s clown shirt to hold its place in the HOF display. Tell everyone that when they have the real shirt it will be put there in place of the substitute. Goodell would move heaven snd earth.

  36. MichaelEdits says: Feb 13, 2017 2:02 PM

    It’s just like that search for the real killer.

  37. artvan15 says: Feb 13, 2017 2:27 PM

    The 18-wheeler has now disappeared.

  38. rootpain says: Feb 13, 2017 2:29 PM

    Its value is tied to it looking like it’s a game worn jersey. For that to be the case, it can’t be washed or otherwise altered to eliminate DNA and other game specific stains for which there is plenty of film to verify with.
    If the thief modifies it to try and protect himself, it’s worthless. And if he is then caught, his punishment will be severe. He is better off just mailing it in in good condition and hope that the case gets closed.

  39. artvan15 says: Feb 13, 2017 2:31 PM

    Actually I have the jersey and don’t plan on giving it back.

  40. somehomer says: Feb 13, 2017 2:34 PM

    Kraft knows it’s anNFL employee and is giving the league time to cover tracks .

  41. purplekoolaid1 says: Feb 13, 2017 2:37 PM

    They should check under Trump’s massive rug that sits atop his head.

  42. slippery59 says: Feb 13, 2017 2:39 PM

    What’s the over/under on how many more “Putin’s got it” statements will be made here?

    Thank you, that was the funniest correction I’ve seen in a while.

  44. johnodocks says: Feb 13, 2017 3:27 PM

    Kraft didn’t say that the jersey was like a priceless work of art. He was saying that taking it is like taking a priceless work of art. Their only use is in displaying them but you can’t display them because, as soon as you do, they’ll be confiscated and you’ll be implicated in the theft or the receiver of stolen goods. You can’t sell them because anyone who knows their value would know they’re stolen.

  45. Rolo Tomassi says: Feb 13, 2017 3:31 PM

    I have it

  46. davexucc says: Feb 13, 2017 3:39 PM

    Putin has it for sure.
