Tom Brady’s last two Super Bowl jerseys both recovered

It wasn’t only Tom Brady’s Super Bowl LI jersey that was stolen and is now recovered.

According to Tom Curran of CSNNE.com, it was actually Brady’s last two Super Bowl jerseys that were stolen, and both of them have now been recovered from the same source.

The report says Brady’s Super Bowl XLIX jersey from two years ago was taken by the same person who took the Super Bowl LI jersey. Both were stolen at the Super Bowl, then taken outside the United States, and both were recovered in an FBI investigation.

It’s unclear how one person was able to steal two Super Bowl jerseys and sell them both overseas, and it’s also unclear why we’re just now learning that the two-year-old Super Bowl XLIX jersey had also been stolen. The missing Super Bowl LI jersey was reported within hours after the game ended and has been the subject of much discussion in the seven weeks since.

Brady will apparently get both of his jerseys back soon.

  1. ‘Both were stolen outside the United States”

    Well, clearly they weren’t both “stolen outside the United States.” We know that the most recent theft occurred in the locker room in Houston, and presumably the other one also occurred in the locker room, which means that neither was “stolen outside the United States” (unless, you know, they were subsequently stolen from the person who originally stole them…)

  2. It was “the deflator’!!! Since he doesn’t get the cash anymore for helping with Tom’s balls he needed an alternative income source!!

  3. It was being stored off shore along side most of the Corporate worlds American taxable profits.

    Now I have to get back to work so I can pay my share of taxes along their shares too. (While I fund my own retirement.)

  4. If there’s a single source (and given the SB51 jersey went missing before the media were allowed into the locker), then it has to either be a Pats or NFL thief. Given that the last known thief of Pats memorabilia (when footballs were switched in the 2015 AFCCG and initially blamed on the Pats as proof they had been caught red-handed messing with balls) was later actually shown to have been a lying NFL official stealing balls for sale on ebay (the NFL didn’t publicize the firing and used the initial lie as part of the reason to go all Ted Wells on the case). So, at this point, a lying NFL official has to be likelier suspect.

  5. Look Patriots fans, I don’t think you cheat and I do believe Bill and Brady are the greatest HC and QB of all time, but even you can admit that weird things surround the Patriots.. 2 Jerseys?!??

  6. ” Both were stolen outside the United States…”

    So, you are telling us they were recovered in California?

  7. Now when is President Trump getting Robert Kraft’s stolen Super Bowl ring back from Vladimir?

  8. “and it’s also unclear why we’re just now learning that the two-year-old Super Bowl XLIX jersey had also been stolen.”

    We’re not just learning about this now. Brady said back in February that his Super Bowl 49 jersey was also stolen.

    ———-

    that qualification alone makes for a lengthy list of suspects. Good thing they all couldn’t have been in that locker room at the same time.

  10. I don’t think a whole lot of Pats fans or anyone else was too worried about this.

    I think most Pats fans are far more concerned the team and Butler find a way to work it out for another year.

  11. I wouldn’t be surprised if it was indeed one of the equipment guys involved in the deflategate thing. After all, the whole episode started when one of them became upset at Brady over not giving him some signed gear. That led to balls at the Jets game being way over-inflated. That’s when Brady first had a conversation with them over PSI…and the rest is history.

  12. I really want to find out who did this. It sounds like it was someone in the Pats organization, perhaps an equipment person.

    I am very glad they were recovered. To lose that bit of history by someone’s theft is just so…. wrong. To get them back is a good thing.

    If you’re not responsible for funding your own retirement, which evil, greedy rich person or entity is?

  14. Goodell will somehow blame Brady and the Patriots and suspend Brady for season, fine Patriots 10 million and take away the complete 2018 draft from them.

  15. So…let me understand. My tax dollars supported an FBI investigation into a jersey theft? Really? When we have so many real crimes going on out there? SMH

  16. It was Obama and Clinton, they LOVE to steal from the rich and give to the “poor” in exchange for votes.

    I’m glad to see that Brady gets his jerseys back.

  17. The Boston Globe reports its source says a person “posing as a member of the international media” stole it.

    Oh my. From now on there will be increased scrutiny of the media in locker rooms and more restricted access.

    How absolutely appropriate!

  18. Clearly this was an NFL employee, not a team employee. The same thing happened during the AFCCG (the game where cold damp weather caused the psi in NE and Indy’s footballs to drop). An NFL employee stole a couple of game balls to sell. He gave the NE ball boys non-approved footballs. B$PN screamed from the roof tops, “PATRIOTS TRY TO INTRODUCE NON-APPROVED FOOTBALLS!!!”
    Come to find out it was just another bumbling NFL staffer.

  19. Reports are that they were both found in the possession of a credentialed member of the international press.

  20. “It’s unclear how one person was able to steal two Super Bowl jerseys and sell them both overseas, and it’s also unclear why we’re just now learning that the two-year-old Super Bowl XLIX jersey had also been stolen.”
    _________________________________

    Credentialed media member from outside of the U.S. took them after the games. And I also believe that Brady mentioned his other one was missing back when he informed everyone of this one.

  21. Being reported it was a credentialed member of the “international” media.

    So, for all the finger pointing by the media and it’s insistence it couldn’t have been one of them, well……..

    And don’t forget the Putin ring scandal….anyway, agreed 100%,

  23. Wait for the crazies to turn this into another conspiracy.

    Brady had his jersey stolen a couple of years ago, they couldn’t find it, so the NFL “let” the Pats win the most recent SB just so they could set up the sting to find the connection when the most recent theft happened. The suspension and everything else was just a ruse to throw people off, so they wouldn’t suspect the NFL was actually helping the Pats.

    I wouldn’t believe a word of it, but I am sure someone will come up with something similar and a portion of people will believe it entirely.

  24. If the buyer of the jerseys didn’t know they were “stolen” then he’s only out money. If he did know, he’s likely going to be out money and have some legal troubles, depending on the countries extradition laws…

    Please look up the definition of stolen. You’re already on the internet and it will help make you look smarter.

    as a verb,

    to move, go, or come secretly, quietly, or unobserved:
    She stole out of the house at midnight.

    Had to be an NFL insider. You can bet the FBI and Goodell are negotiating a way to spin this so the NFL doesn’t look bad. (again)

    —————————-

    Oh I’m sure. There may be no actual clarification given, the NFL does not have a hustory of transparency or admitting errors. I doubt you will see a ‘we have identified issues in our security and have taken corrective measures’ type thing. But if you see any sudden firings from the NFL or Patriots equipment staff you can draw your own conclusions. Im sure there are some press credentials that are going to get pulled (sounds like one of the foreign agencies) but thats usually not visible. But the firings often get small mentions.

    In defense of the NFL and the Patriots, there is no one that wants to air internal personnel problems externally in the press. Most businesses have the luxury of never having any pressure to so they simply dont.

  27. Um, not even close. SB XLIX was in Feb 2015 against the Seattle Seahawks. The one in 2002 against the Rams was Super Bowl XXXVI.

    For those following at home Super Bowl XLIX is Pats vs. Rams in 2002.

  28. Why can’t people understand that missing valuables (approximately half a million dollars worth) stolen from Americans and taken to foreign soil is exactly the kind of thing the FBI does?
