In a bizarre twist, not only has Tom Brady’s Super Bowl 51 jersey been recovered in Mexico (per Fox 26), but as has his Super Bowl 49 jersey from the team’s win over the Seattle Seahawks.
“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, per Pro Football Talk. “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 the ongoing investigation, we would refer any additional questions to the FBI.”
The report doesn’t say where the jersey was found, but we should know more later.
