The NFL has announced that two stolen Tom Brady Super Bowl jerseys have been recovered.
The organization worked with the FBI and “other law enforcement authorities” to recover jerseys from the Patriots’ Super Bowl 51 and 49 victories.
"The items were found in the possession of a credentialed member of the international media," the NFL said.
Brady’s Super Bowl 51 jersey has been missing since he changed out of it for the post-game ceremony.
"I put it in my bag, and then I came out and it wasn't there anymore. So it's unfortunate because that's a nice piece of memorabilia. So if it turns up on eBay somewhere, someone let me know," Brady later said.
The jersey was estimated to be valued at a whopping $500,000, according to Houston police.
Here’s the full statement from 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. 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."
