The search for New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady's missing Super Bowl jersey is over.

Could the same person who snatched Tom Brady's game-worn jersey shortly after Super Bowl 51 in February also be the same person who stole Von Miller's gear in the aftermath of Super Bowl 50?

The NFL issued a statement saying the "items were found in the possession of a credentialed member of the worldwide media".

"They really need to check their protocols and their efforts, because this is at least two jerseys that we're aware of, and obviously it required a response from the Houston police department and other departments to recover them". "I know exactly where I put it", Brady said, according to USA Today Sports. Following the game, Brady's jersey was stolen from the Patriots' locker room. The jersey likely could have been sold to a collector for "great monetary gain", Acevedo said.

The jersey was found in Mexico, Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said in a post on Twitter.

Aratana Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ:PETX) Closed the Last Trading Session at $5.32

OK, maybe not. Even the Houston police suddenly seem a tad defensive over how big this stolen Brady jersey thing became. As SB Nation noted, "It did not, however, appear to include anyone posing as a member of the global media".

Authorities did not identify a suspect or announce any arrests, but Mexican media company Organizacion Editorial Mexicana said Mauricio Ortega, the director of La Prensa in Mexico City, had resigned March 14 for "personal reasons", and that it learned only Monday of his possible involvement in the case.

In any case, the fact that the missing Brady jersey was recovered is remarkable, and the story that we'll learn as the case makes its way through the legal system is likely to be extremely compelling. "As it is an ongoing investigation, we will defer all additional questions and inquiries to the National Football League", the team said in a statement. "You came to the wrong state", Acevedo said about the suspect.

The 39-year-old Brady set Super Bowl records for most passing attempts (62), most completions (43) and most passing yards (466) as New England overcame a 28-3 deficit to beat the Falcons.

Brady, in a statement from his agent, Don Yee, expressed gratitude to investigators but said he hadn't yet been reunited with the jerseys.
