Police and the NFL announced Monday that Brady’s jersey, which went missing from the locker room after the Patriots’ 34-28 overtime win over the Atlanta Falcons last month, had been found in Mexico. The NFL said the jersey was in “possession of a credentialed member of the international media.”
A Mexican newspaper company, the Organizacion Editorial Mexicana, said on Twitter a short time later that a former executive from the tabloid La Prensa was involved. But it did not identify the executive, and said a statement was expected later in the day.
The missing jersey – and the subsequent investigation – captivated Patriots fans and social media for several days after the Super Bowl. Brady lamented the theft after the game.
“If it shows up on eBay or something, somebody let me know,” he said.
