It seems that the heist of the century has finally been solved.

Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer reported on Monday morning that the FBI and NFL security had recovered the Tom Brady’s stolen Super Bowl jersey and were in the process of returning it to the New England Patriots. The FBI was involved because the jersey was found on foreign soil.


The NFL believes it was stolen by someone posing as a member of the foreign media.

The estimated value of the jersey is $500,000 which would make its theft a felony.

And check this out…According to CSNNE’s Tom E. Curran, the FBI found two of Brady’s Super Bowl jerseys — the one from Super Bowl 51 and one from Super Bowl 49 — both reportedly taken by the same person.

UPDATE: The Houston Chief of Police tweets that the jersey was recovered in Mexico.

The NFL released a statement.

“Through the cooperation of the NFL and New New England Patriots’ security teams, the FBI and other law enforcement authorities, the Super Bowl LI jersey worn last month by MVP Tom Brady has been recovered. Also retrieved during the ongoing investigation was the jersey Brady wore in the Patriots’ victory in Super Bowl XLIX against the Seattle Seahawks in 2015.

“The items were found in the possession of a credentialed member of the international media. Due to an ongoing investigation, we would refer any additional questions to the FBI.”
