The NFL on Monday announced that Tom Brady's stolen jersey has been found and is being returned to Super Bowl MVP. The FBI recovered not one but two Super Bowl uniforms worn by the New England Patriots' star quarterback, and the pair of jerseys-worth an estimated $800,000-was found in the possession of a credentialed worldwide reporter. They had to authenticate them, make sure these were actually Tom Brady's jerseys, and in fact they were. "If it shows up on eBay somewhere, someone let me know so I can track that down". It's a jersey. I put it in my bag because I wanted to keep it. However, the National Football League later said that the jerseys were "were found in the possession of a credentialed member of the worldwide media".

He called the stolen jersey the only "blemish" on Houston's otherwise successful hosting of the Super Bowl.

Mauricio Ortega, a former executive of the Mexico City newspaper Diario La Prensa, was confronted by authorities in Mexico. No further information on the suspect has been released.

The NFL announced Monday morning that investigators with the Houston Police Department Major Offenders Division, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Mexican authorities traced the jersey to a credentialed member of the global press living in Mexico.

"We're highly confident that these are the jerseys", Acevedo said. "Quite frankly, they are going to end up in the hands that they belong as in Mr. Brady and his family".

The Texas Rangers and the Houston Police Department were initially involved in the investigation. Police also found a Brady jersey from Super Bowl XLIX.

Kraft later compared the jersey to a piece of fine art. "It can have great value in terms of monetary gain". "You came to the wrong state", Acevedo said about the suspect.

Last month, he said he was due to discuss the matter with authorities. The development raised questions as to whether the culprit replaced the Super Bowl XLIX jersey with a replica - which someone allegedly did nine years ago after stealing Michael Strahan's Super Bowl XLII jersey.
