Take Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick:
"In Texas we place a very high value on hospitality and football," Patrick said in a statement released Monday. "Tom Brady's jersey has great historical value and is already being called 'the most valuable NFL collectable ever.' 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. I've called Colonel Steve McCraw to ask that the Texas Rangers work with the Houston Police Department on this case.
The Texas Rangers are a major division within the Texas Department of Public Safety with lead criminal investigative responsibility for a number of crime and public corruption/integrity investigations. Leave your baseball jokes at home.
NFL security is also looking into Brady's apparent jersey theft, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a league spokesman.
The tale of the missing jersey continues.
