Brady’s SB 51 Jersey Found By FBI
The long national nightmare for sports fans is officially over: Tom Brady’s Super Bowl jersey has been found, according to Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.
The jersey was lost immediately after the historic Super Bowl win for the New England Patriots over the Atlanta Falcons in early February of this year. Brady took off the jersey after the win in the locker and then returned to find that it had been missing from his equipment. Glazer reports that investigators believe someone posing as international media may have taken the jersey during the celebration. In addition to the SB 52 jersey being located, officials also were able to reclaim the SB 49 jersey that had also been taken.

According to Glazer, the jersey was found outside the country by the FBI and NFL security after it was sold to another potential buyer. Since the sale occurred in another country, the FBI became involved in the situation. The NFL plans to return the item back to Brady and the Pats.
Brady a few weeks ago joked about possible suspects on his Facebook page that could have nabbed the jersey.
Last month the Texas Rangers were said to be on the lookout for the jersey before reports were that the uniform may have been taken to another continent. According to the Houston Police Department, the SB 51 jersey worn by the QB was valued at $500,000.
