Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl jerseys have been recovered

Tom Brady's Super Bowl LI jersey has been found.

On Monday, the league said in a statement that federal and local law enforcement officials had found the jersey "in the possession of a credentialed member of the worldwide media".

The NFL spokesman also noted that Brady's Super Bowl XLIX jersey from the Patriots' win over the Seahawks was also recovered in the search for the Super Bowl LI jersey.

"Someone stole my game jersey", Brady told Patriots owner Robert Kraft in the locker room after last month's Super Bowl, to which Kraft replied, "You better look online". "I know exactly where I put it".

The suspect can be seen entering the Patriots' locker room after Super Bowl 51, carrying a bag on one shoulder just a few people behind Bill Belichick. We repeat, the jersey has been found.

Houston police investigators relied on a tip from an informant to trace the jersey, estimated to be worth about $500,000, to Mexico. "Whenever you're dealing with global soil, with anything overseas, with someone breaking into, basically, a Super Bowl locker room, that's so incredibly secure, this story will only get more and more [wild]".

In any case, the fact that the missing Brady jersey was recovered is remarkable, and the story that we'll learn as the case makes its way through the legal system is likely to be extremely compelling.

The jerseys are in the possession of the National Football League and Federal Bureau of Investigation in Boston, and law enforcement was working to authenticate them, the chief said.

"That person of interest, I'm told, is an global member of the media". The Broncos defeated the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, in February 2016, and the helmet of Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller, who was named Super Bowl MVP, went missing. He was later captured on tape leaving "with something under his arm", Glazer said.

The two stolen jerseys have since been returned to Boston and are scheduled to be given to Brady later this week, as Acevedo noted in his press conference earlier today.
