Von Miller didn’t know his Super Bowl 50 helmet was missing

The general public didn’t know that Broncos linebacker Von Miller’s helmet from Super Bowl 50 was missing. Neither did Miller.

“Honestly, I didn’t even know my helmet was missing,” Miller told reporters on Tuesday. “That’s how crazy last year was. We had the best of the best and the finest investigators on the whole ordeal. They were able to find Tom [Brady’s] jerseys and they were able to find my helmet as well. Hats off to those guys.”

Miller added that the helmet is back in Denver, but that he hasn’t had time to pick it up.

Via the item from TheMMQB.com about the recovery of Tom Brady’s Super Bowl jerseys in Mexico, the Miller helmet was not in the home of Martín Mauricio Ortega. It arrived only after authorities asked Ortega if he had anything other than the Super Bowl XLIX and LI jerseys stolen from Brady. Ortega made a phone call, and then a friend showed up with Miller’s helmet from Super Bowl 50.

And so Ortega managed to steal a key item from the MVP of three straight Super Bowls. PFT previously has determined that nothing was taken from Super Bowl XLVII MVP Joe Flacco. In a recent visit to PFT Live, Super Bowl XLIV MVP Drew Brees said that all of his gear is accounted for.

    What a strange case. “Do you have anything else you’ve stolen and smuggled out of the country?” “Yeah sure, I was hoping you wouldn’t ask, but since you did and I’m an honest thief, let me call my buddy and he’ll bring over Von Miller’s helmet.”

    Clearly Martín Mauricio Ortega only steals from elite players.

    There’s a lot of things Von Miller doesn’t know.

    Maybe the Mexican government should hire Ortega to negotiate with Trump about that wall.

    I suspect the conversation was, “you are going to be charged with xxx”…”what if I can get you more items recovered”….”what can you produce?”

    I had wondered how he avoided getting charged with anything so if there was some dealing involved that could explain it.

    Is that because he isn’t elite?

    The whole story is BOGUS! Give me a break.

    I can’t believe Flacco didn’t have anything stolen. That stuff would be worth 10’s of dollars. Of course with Ray Rice in that same locker room, I would be hesitant to pull any shenanigans too.

    A Flacco jersey. Why would I steal that? ~Ortega

    Bree’s still owes Pete Morelli and his corrupt crew.

    This rock head didn’t even know he had it on when he was playing…

    Von Miller:…..”I thought maybe my helmet got lost in Cam Newtons backside after the umpteenth hit I put on him”…..

    Martin Mauricio Ortega is one bad hombre

    All the redskins gear in the last 20 years is accounted for.

    Isn’t it the responsibility of the team equipment assistant to take care of the hardware, helmets, pads, etc following a game?

    They wish it were only 20 years. It’s been over a quarter of a century.
