The Texas Rangers (the law-enforcement guys, not the baseball guys) and the Houston Police Department are already on the lookout for Tom Brady's Super Bowl LI jersey. In fact, there's been a reward offered for anyone who can provide information on where the Patriots quarterback's historic No. 12 might be.
There may be another valuable piece of memorabilia floating around out there as well, it seems.
Joining The Dan Patrick Show on Tuesday, James White explained that he wasn't exactly sure where the football used to score the game-winning touchdown had gone. Maybe, White thought, Patriots equipment manager Dave Schoenfeld had it somewhere.
"I actually don’t know what I did with it," he said with a laugh. "I left it on the ground and started running. Hopefully Dave has it for me in the equipment room . . . I wasn’t thinking in that moment. I was too busy sprinting down the field."
White did say he was able to keep the ball from the first of his three touchdowns in the game. The ball from his second score, which helped the Patriots tie the game, ended up being spiked into God-knows-where. The third, it seems, was left right at the goal line when the celebration began.
White said Brady told him he wanted to give him the car that typically goes to the MVP -- that's what he did when Malcolm Butler made the Super Bowl-winning pick two years ago -- but it turns out cars aren't given to MVPs any longer.
