    Suspect Tried Stealing $10K Tom Brady Jersey by Wearing It
    NBC Sports - Boston
    Patriots' Tom Brady led all NFL players in merchandise sales over offseason

    Authorities say a Rhode Island man visiting the New England Patriots Hall of Fame took a Tom Brady jersey off a display and walked off with it.

    Zanini Cineus, of Providence, was freed on personal recognizance after a not guilty plea to a larceny charge was entered on his behalf at his arraignment Thursday.

    Police say the 33-year-old Cineus was wearing it under his jacket when he was apprehended by Thursday still in the vicinity of Gillette Stadium.

    Police say the signed jersey was worth $10,000, but the team said it had not been worn in a game.

    Cineus's lawyer, Bill Galvin, declined to comment.

    Brady's game-worn jersey was stolen out of the locker room after the Patriots' 34-28 overtime Super Bowl victory over the Atlanta Falcons in 2017.
