The jersey has been found!
Tom Brady's Super Bowl jersey, that curiously went missing after the New England Patriots won the big game in February, was recovered in Mexico on Monday, according to the Mexican Editorial Organization. The newspaper company said in a statement that both Brady's Super Bowl LI and Super Bowl XLIX jerseys were recovered, along with a Denver Broncos helmet believed to belong to Von Miller.
The organization identified the suspect as international newspaper director Mauricio Ortega, who has since resigned from his job.
Additionally, Houston Police are authenticating the stolen valuables, police chief Art Avecedo revealed on Monday.
"Proud @houstonpolice Major Offenders Divison traced Brady Jersey to Mexico & it has been recovered with help of FBI & Mexican authorities," the policeman wrote on Twitter.

For his part, Brady seemed breezy about the missing jersey.
The quarterback took to Instagram in February, sharing a fake Homeland-style suspect board, which included the likes of Lady Gaga and the shark from Jaws.
Either way, glad to see the goods returned to their rightful owners!
