Tom Brady’s Missing Super Bowl Jerseys Found in Mexico
Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl jerseys have been found in the possession of an unidentified member of the international press, according to the NFL.
“Through the cooperation of the NFL and 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,” the NFL said in a statement released on Monday, March 20. “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 sports organization continued: “The items were found in the possession of a credentialed member of the international media. Due to the ongoing investigation, we would refer any additional questions to the FBI.” According to a tweet from Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo, the jerseys were found in Mexico.
In a statement released by Brady’s agent, Don Yee, Tom Brady responded to the news that his Super Bowl jerseys were retrieved after being found in the possession of an unidentified member of the international press.
“I am happy my jerseys from SB 49 and SB 51 have been recovered, and I want to thank all of the law enforcement agencies involved. I know they worked hard on this case — and it is very much appreciated,” the statement reads, according to NBC News’ Nadine Comerford. “Hopefully when I get the jerseys back I can make something very positive come from this experience.”
