FBI Locates Tom Brady's Missing Super Bowl Jersey in Mexico

On Monday, the NFL said league security teamed up with the Patriots, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and other law enforcement agencies in the search, which also unearthed the jersey Brady wore in the Patriots' Super Bowl XLIX victory in 2015.

A report today from Fox Sports 1's (FS1) Jay Glazer indicates that a suspected thief has been caught by worldwide authorities and some believe that this thief might be responsible for much more than just stealing Brady's jersey.

After a Super Bowl that produced multiple noteworthy and historic story lines - the New England Patriots overcoming a 25-point deficit, Bill Belichick and Tom Brady winning their record fifth title - one of the most abstract was the tale of the missing jersey.

That's not all - with the same person, authorities also recovered another of Brady's Super Bowl jerseys, this one from his team's victory over the Seattle Seahawks in 2015. Following the game, Brady's jersey was stolen from the Patriots' locker room.

The jersey went missing following the Patriots' stunning 34-28 comeback victory over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI on February 5.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, who had invited the Department of Public Safety's Texas Rangers to join the posse looking for the jersey, posted a statement Monday on Facebook. "We're highly confident these are, in fact, the jerseys".

The NFL credentialed 5,700 media members, "including several hundred from Mexico".

Brady, in a statement from his agent, Don Yee, expressed gratitude to investigators but said he hadn't yet been reunited with the jerseys. "Hopefully when I get the jerseys back I can make something very positive come from this experience".

"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 jersey is valued at $500,000, according to Houston police. "I know exactly where I put it". Glazer claimed this person "posed" as a member of the media, and was not actually affiliated with anyone.

Earlier in the day, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo took to Twitter to announce the potential recovery of Brady's jerseys.
