The National Football League and the FBI confirmed Monday that the jersey stolen from Super Bowl LI winning quarterback Tom Brady have been recovered in Mexico.
Several media outlets including NBC Sports reported that an unconfirmed member of the international media is the suspect and authorities are currently testing the garment for authenticity. The media worker did have credentials to work the game, investigators said.
Brady's other missing jersey- the one he wore when the New England Patriots defeated the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX in 2015 in Phoenix- was also discovered during the investigation, the report said.
Police investigators in Houston, where this year's game was played, had valued the jersey at $500,000 after consulting with sports memorabilia experts.
