Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl jersey in Mexico

Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl jersey in Mexico

New England have won five of the past 17 Super Bowls, with Brady under centre every time.

Brady is the first quarterback to win five Super Bowl titles. Rather, he was losing his mind because he believed someone had stolen the jersey he wore during the game.

Initially, some people within the Patriots organization thought the jersey may have just been misplaced. I'm proud to say as a result of their hard work, and with the assistance of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Mexican authorities, we believe we've recovered the jersey.

The NFL tweeted on Monday morning that Brady's jersey from the 2015 Super Bowl has also been recovered.

Over the course of the last month, details about the missing jersey have been few and far between.

FOX's Jay Glazer on Monday afternoon went on Colin Cowherd's show to unveil video from the Patriots locker room used by authorities that shows the jersey being taken by a man with his face blurred.

According to multiple sources, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's missing Super Bowl 51 game jersey has been located on foreign soil.

A helmet believed to belong to Von Miller, the Most Valuable Player at the 2016 Super Bowl won by the Denver Broncos, was also recovered, according to USA reports.

So how did all of the gear get to Mexico?

The Mexican Editorial Organization, a Mexican newspaper company, posted a tweet saying a former executive from tabloid Diario La Prensa was involved in the case. That footage was aired on "The Herd with Colin Cowherd". Internet sleuths began suspecting random fans who photographed themselves with Brady jerseys-the kind that anyone with $125 can buy.

The statement released by the National Football League says it was a "credentialed member of the worldwide media" but didn't say anything about charges being filed.

Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo confirmed the finding, adding that the jerseys were found in Mexico.

The AP reports that the jerseys are now in Boston being authenticated. Other players assisted in the search, but Brady soon came to terms with the lost item, telling those nearby, "if anyone sees on eBay, a jersey for sale".

The paper said it was willing to cooperate in any investigation of the incident.
