Tom Brady's missing Super Bowl jersey found in Mexico

Posted March 21, 2017

The long, national nightmare of the missing Tom Brady Super Bowl LI has finally come to an end, with the NFL announcing the league's security found Brady's jersey, along with a missing jersey from Super Bowl XLIX, in Mexico with the help of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Glazer said the suspect is an "international media member".

Along with the jersey, worn during Brady during Super Bowl LI, authorities also recovered a second jersey worn by Brady during the Patriots' 2015 Super Bowl XLIV victory against the Seattle Seahawks, NFL officials said in a statement.

Tom Brady went almost two months without knowing where his Super Bowl LI jersey was, but that mystery is on the brink of being solved. Police also found a Brady jersey from Super Bowl XLIX.

The recovery of the second jersey was a surprise as it was unknown that Brady was missing that one, as well.

The global nature of the case prompted the Federal Bureau of Investigation to get involved, and the jerseys were tracked down in Mexico.

"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". The crime is considered a first-degree felony, according to a police report. They had to authenticate them, make sure these were actually Tom Brady's jerseys, and in fact they were. "I absolutely, 100 percent put it in my bag", Brady says despairingly as he searches through his possessions for the lost jersey.

"I hope I get it back", Brady said on the PFT Live radio show in February. "It's kinda like a piece of art", Acevedo told reporters. He was named Super Bowl MVP for the fourth time, the most all time, in his victory over the Falcons.
