QUINCY, Mass. -- The Quincy home of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was broken into Friday afternoon, but only a television was taken.

Quincy Police Lieutenant Paul Keenan said a 27-inch television was stolen from a unit at the Marina Bay development shortly after noon. He said someone forced the door open and took the TV from the front room.

Keenan would not identify the victim or the exact address. But Boston-area broadcast and print reports said that it was Brady's home.

Brady told the Boston Herald during practice Friday, that he was just glad the thief didn't get his Super Bowl MVP trophy from the Patriots' 2002 win over the St. Louis Rams.

A Patriots' spokesman said he knew nothing about the break-in.

The Patriots will leave Boston Saturday for Sunday's game against the Houston Texans.
