There remain two pervasive mysteries surrounding Super Bowl LI and the Patriots’ triumphant victory. One, of course, is how the hell the Falcons could blow a 25-point third-quarter lead (still not over it). The second is, who stole Tom Brady’s jersey? The first will perplex the NFL forever; the second, we may have an answer.
Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer is reporting that the NFL and the FBI (yes, the FBI, more on that in a moment) have recovered the jersey stolen from Brady’s locker in the chaotic moments following the Patriots’ victory. Houston law enforcement had treated the theft as a felony given the potential half-million-dollar value of the jersey.
Glazer indicated that the FBI became involved because the jersey crossed national borders. (Speculate away!) Another report, by Tom Curran of CSNNE, indicated that Brady’s jersey from Super Bowl XLIX (the victory over the Seahawks) was also stolen and recovered.
More details to follow…
