Report: Tom Brady’s Super Bowl jersey has been found

Getty Images

The case of the missing Super Bowl jersey may have been cracked.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reports that the FBI and NFL Security believe they have located Tom Brady’s stolen Super Bowl LI jersey and it will be returned. Glazer reports that the FBI got involved because the jersey was on foreign soil.

There’s no word on whether anyone has been arrested in the investigation, which Houston police said they considered a felony given the value of the jersey, which could have gone for $500,000 at a sports memorabilia auction.

Brady, who won the Super Bowl MVP award for leading the Patriots to a historic comeback win in overtime, has said he was optimistic the jersey would be found, and the Patriots have said the same. It appears that optimism was warranted, as the jersey is now on the way back to where it belongs.

    So clearly the missing piece of info here and what everyone wants to know is…where was it?

  3. footballisnotthatimportant says: Mar 20, 2017 8:13 AM

    We tasked the FBI to find a freaking football jersey?

  5. A happy green parrot says: Mar 20, 2017 8:14 AM

    Had it been altered to look like a Terry Bradshaw jersey which got discovered when it was recently sold for 66k?

  6. Indybear says: Mar 20, 2017 8:14 AM

    This development must surely mean that total world peace is not too far off in the distance.

  7. dcpatfan says: Mar 20, 2017 8:16 AM

    The Undisputed Greatest NFL Player Of All Time, Tom “Terrific” Brady’s only concern is when the next Superbowl Jersey is fitted with the appropriate Superbowl Sheild.

  8. mannyiac says: Mar 20, 2017 8:17 AM

    Good to have that piece of history back where it belongs.

    My goodness, FBI needs to focus doing their job on something more important, such as solving murders cases, rape, etc., stop wasting our money and time on stupid things.

  22. LyinRogerMustGo says: Mar 20, 2017 8:26 AM

    While the FBI is thinking about the NFL maybe they ought to start looking into them, and how the total farce and completely fabricated cheating scandal otherwise known as Deflategate came to be.

    #LyinRoger will look good in orange, yes?

  23. wlewis1976 says: Mar 20, 2017 8:27 AM

    It was in the belly of that pregnant giraffe, that’s why it was so hard to find.

  24. johny248 says: Mar 20, 2017 8:27 AM

    Lol good luck getting back to the US, will probably be denied due to Trump’s travel ban. I’m sure some rich guy from a Muslim dominat country forked over the money for it.

  39. metlifeteardown says: Mar 20, 2017 8:35 AM

    First SB MVP with a pick 6. Montana 0 picks in 4 games. Montana also took hits from Burt and Marshall that don’t exist in NFL anymore. Different era. Staubach would have absolutely killed it in today’s NFL too. In the discussion.

  49. boblavoie says: Mar 20, 2017 8:40 AM

    Update: #12 Jersey on its way back from corner of Novaya Place and Ul Ilyinka, Moscow, Russia. It was right next to Bob’s Superbowl ring. In Jest!

  50. billsfan says: Mar 20, 2017 8:41 AM

    Thank goodness…The next step in the plan to locate it, was to employ Seal Team 6 and the 82nd AIRborn.
    Fortunately, the FBI got it done, without Pentagon involvement.
    There will, however, be congressional hearings, on why this was allowed to happen in the first place.

    C’mon Roger, chips in jerseys could solve this problem!

    The jersey is property of the Patriots not Brady.

    If the team gives Brady the jersey I hope like hell that they add the 500k “value” to his w-2 and also report that half a million to the league for cap purposes.

    Uniforms are team property.

  54. jr325 says: Mar 20, 2017 8:43 AM

    All kidding aside. Stealing something with a value of $500k be it a jersey or a work of art should be taken as seriously and criminal behavior not rewarded. This is no different than walking into an art Gallery or Tiffany’s and walking away with $500,000 in merchandise.

  57. newpairofsox says: Mar 20, 2017 8:45 AM

    Robert Kraft gave it to nameless Russian oligarch to ensure Trump election victory. Crazy thing: you know in your heart it’s entirely possible, even likely.

    “Get more tax dollars for billionaires”…… You talk about this like tax money belongs to the Government. The money is the payers’ to begin with. letting people keep their own money is a good thing.

  62. weepingjebus says: Mar 20, 2017 8:52 AM

    The FBI will probably conclude that the thief didn’t intend to have it, and no reasonable prosecutor would pursue the matter.

  63. raymondmac says: Mar 20, 2017 8:53 AM

    oh dear! Trumpskites don’t like to see their devoted heroes criticized.

    Time to change your panties.

  64. patsdrukker says: Mar 20, 2017 8:53 AM

    Well, if it was in other state that means FBI have to be involved.
    If “foreign soil” means other country then CIA it is, since FBI is inside US.

    PFT, please keep us updated! At least when it will be sold in an auction I would like to know by how much, then compare that with the money spent on the investigation to cover it.
    Then cover the investigation money from the auction income. I’m sure that not the NFL will be the one to pay for the investigation (Not this invetigation, anyhow). So I’m interested how much the people pay for this.

    Then still: Stealing is bad, …mkay?!

  65. relaxationsandwich says: Mar 20, 2017 8:55 AM

    For all of you people what are so superior to everyone else that you can decide what is and is not important for the whole world, the shirt is worth half a million dollars, and he was planning to donate it to research to find a cure for cancer.
    Especially for those really sad people disparaging America for this yes, America, where a person with a shirt worth half a million would actually give it to charity.
    Yes, America, where the rest of the world comes for the best medical care because of people like Tom Brady and his shirt.
    I’ll take Tom Brady over a thousand of you……any day.

  66. promickey says: Mar 20, 2017 8:56 AM

    Oh great the FBI has found Tom’s valuable jersey. Perhaps now they can spend some time on the Presidential administration’s leaks to the media.

    The aforementioned leaks are also a Felony but less important than a valuable football jersey from the Super Bowl.

  67. saltineamerican says: Mar 20, 2017 8:57 AM

    The jersey is an important piece of NFL history. Unfortunately, there isn’t much detail in the story concerning the foreign involvement so ill reserve judgement of FBI involvement until all facts are known. I’m glad it has been found and will be returned to the rightful owner.

  68. A happy green parrot says: Mar 20, 2017 8:57 AM

    Sure the FBI located it. But the SEALs still need to go in there to get it.

  69. k0mbucha says: Mar 20, 2017 8:58 AM

    Really of all the things the FBI is tasked with is to locate a darn sports jersey???

    Maybe they should also look why refs make horrible calls or better yet get to the bottom of Jimmy Hoffa being buried beneath Giants stadium!

    REALLY?

    It may have cost the FBI more money to find it than the jersey is worth in an auction.That is because it may not fetch a whole lot of money if people know that it is stolen. What are you going to tell your friends? I bought a stolen jersey that was worn by the SB MVP?

    The FBI doesn’t care about a stolen jersey. They are deeply concerned when it comes to a security breach at the Sb. The large gathering of people is a prime target for a terrorist attack. It’s the times we live in. I know the criminal used a press credential to commit a theft. It could have been much much worse.

    Oooooh a cheater’s jersey was stolen. Guess what? They probably make Brady 50+ jerseys each year. It’s just a piece a fabric.

    Made it easier for you. I can’t help you with common sense and reason, though. Good luck.

    Tee hee 🙂 Patriot Hater still so salty! 🙂

    It’s GREAT to be better than you at everything 🙂 Don’t be mad cupcakes, it’s the natural pecking order of things and you are exactly where you belong.

    At our feet kissing our full hand of rings. Pucker up buttercups!

    🙂

    Probably discovered the items were going to Pay-a-ton Manning, why else would Brady’s jerseys be stolen? Pay-a-ton can’t stand the idea of Brady having more SB trophies and MVPs than he does. And how dare Von Miller be given the MVP trophy over Pay-a-ton? Yes, Pay-a-ton must be behind it, that’s why the NFL let it happen.
