More than a month after Tom Brady’s Super Bowl LI jersey went missing in the Patriots’ locker room immediately after the game, the item has reportedly been found. It appears Brady will potentially be getting multiple missing souvenirs back.
According to FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer, the FBI and the NFL worked together to locate the missing No. 12 jersey:

According to a statement from NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy, the Super Bowl LI Brady jersey wasn’t the only one discovered. Also, according to the NFL, the items were located “in the possession of a credentialed member of the international media.”

Brady originally noticed his jersey was gone shortly after returning to the locker room following the team’s 34-28 comeback win against the Falcons on Feb. 5. In the aftermath, an investigation was launched to locate the item that was valued at half a million dollars.

Brady joked about the case, posting a fake “suspect board” on social media after the Super Bowl. It now appears that Brady can successfully rule out Julian Edelman.
Update: Houston Police chief Art Acevedo said in a tweet that the jerseys’ location was traced to Mexico:
