New England Patriots running back James White told Dan Patrick earlier today that he never kept the football he carried into the end zone during the final play of Super Bowl LI.
“I actually don’t know what I did with it,” White said on Patrick’s radio show Tuesday afternoon. “I left it on the ground and started running.”
White, the third-year running back out of Wisconsin, totaled three touchdowns to go with 139 all-purpose yards and a Super Bowl record 14 catches out of the backfield.
“I wasn’t thinking in that moment. I was too busy sprinting down the field,” said White.
Coincidentally, White’s confession coincides with the theft of Super Bowl MVP and five-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady having his jersey stolen from him during the postgame proceedings.
