The mystery surrounding Tom Brady’s Super Bowl jersey has been solved, and the details are a little disturbing if they’re true in terms of who was behind it.

According to ESPN, Brady’s jersey was reportedly taken by an international credentialed media member, who apparently was also the culprit behind the one that was stolen from Brady back in 2015 during their Super Bowl win over the Seahawks.

Brady had revealed in an interview after the win over Atlanta that this had been the second time a theft had occurred, and this news explains how it could have happened twice after learning that it was the same person who stole it originally.

“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 its statement via ESPN. “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 jerseys were reportedly found in Mexico, although the name of the media member behind the theft has yet to be released.

Hopefully moving forward, the NFL does a better job of preventing something like this from reoccurring and according to the Houston police, the person behind it is now facing a first-degree felony.
