Tom Brady has upped his social media game in attempts to find his missing Super Bowl LI jersey.

The quarterback posted a “suspect board” to his Instagram account on Wednesday. The board called out wide receiver Julian Edelman as the prime suspect because he “loves rings” and is a “sneaky lil’ squirrel.”

“Hey @edelman11 ‘Ya suspect, yeah you! I don’t know what your reputation is in this town, but after that s@?# you pulled, you can bet I’ll be looking into you!’” Brady wrote as the caption.

Edelman jokingly responded by putting his and Tom’s face on characters in a scene from “Good Will Hunting” in which the receiver can be seen saying to the QB, “It’s not your fault. It’s not your fault.”

Other notable culprits in the missing jersey case include Lady Gaga, Tom’s dog Scooby, Michael Scott from The Office, Jaws and many more.

It’s all fun and games until the person responsible gets caught. Police have placed a $500,000 value on the missing jersey, and whoever took it could face some serious trouble.
