Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl jersey recovered in Mexico

The newspaper company said in a statement that both Brady's Super Bowl LI and Super Bowl XLIX jerseys were recovered, along with a Denver Broncos helmet believed to belong to Von Miller.

One of Tom Brady's 2015 National Football League jerseys was also found the possession of the former Mexican newspaper executive who is also suspected of stealing another players gear.

Reports in the Mexican press said that the person of interest is Mauricio Ortega, formerly an executive for La Prensa, a Mexican tabloid.

The suspect in question, according to the Houston Police Department, "had legitimate access to the Super Bowl".

- The biggest mystery of the Super Bowl LI may have been solved.

Last month, Brady jokingly waded into investigating the missing jersey - and put together a "Suspect Board" that included Gollum, Lady Gaga and Jaws. Police also found a Brady jersey from Super Bowl XLIX.

It wasn't the only piece of memorabilia recovered.

The jersey might be found, but there is also a good chance we haven't heard the end of this story, not with so much an global border being involved in the theft.

The jerseys were reportedly found in Mexico, although the name of the media member behind the theft has yet to be released.

The Texas Rangers and the Houston Police Department were initially involved in the investigation.

While the 39-year-old quarterback still has all five of his Superbowl rings, the team's owner, Robert Kraft, is lacking one of the heavy, diamond-encrusted mementoes.

"It is going to be on eBay soon, I guess", Brady said that night when heading out to the team bus.
