Tom Brady’s Stolen Super Bowl Jerseys Have Been Found In Mexico
Our long national nightmare is finally over – Tom Brady’s stolen Super Bowl jersey has been found! You may recall that after beating the Atlanta Falcons in the greatest comeback in Super Bowl History last month, New England Patriots MVP quarterback Tom Brady’s game jersey was stolen from the locker room during the celebration. What you may not have known is that the same thing happened back in 2015 after the Pats beat the Seahawks in Super Bowl 49. But now, thanks to the FBI, Brady’s stolen jerseys have been recovered in Mexico!
The New York Times reports that the stolen jerseys were in the possession of Martin Mauricio Ortega, a member of the media who did have a media credential for the Super Bowl. Coincidentally, Ortega just resigned from his position last week, citing family health issues.
The FBI got involved and tracked down the jerseys, which hold a value of approximately $500,000 each. They are now in the FBI’s possession in Boston. As for charges against Ortega, we’ll probably see them any day now.
Jay Glazer broke this story yesterday when he appeared on Colin Cowherd’s show and broadcast the video that appears to show Ortega entering the locker room empty-handed after the game, and leaving just moments later with something tucked under his arm.
