Tom Brady’s missing Super Bowl LI jersey: A complete timeline
Brady’s jersey went missing after Super Bowl LI, and there was a long and storied road to its recovery.
Tom Brady’s jersey, the one he wore during the New England Patriots historic comeback and overtime win over the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI, had been missing since shortly after the game ended. On Monday, the NFL announced the jersey had been found through the cooperation of the league’s security team and the FBI.
The jersey, valued at $500,000, would fetch a hefty price on the memorabilia market. The league said that the jersey had been found in the possession of someone who had posed as a member of the international media. That person is suspected to be C. Martin Mauricio Ortega, formerly of Mexican news organization La Prensa, though Ortega has not been charged with any crime at this point.
In an unexpected twist, the league also announced that this person also had Brady’s jersey from the Patriots Super Bowl XLIX win over the Seattle Seahawks . Until Monday, that missing jersey hadn’t made headlines. But the fact that it had also been stolen may be part of the reason that the jersey from Super Bowl LI became such a big story.
Here’s a complete timeline of the theft and recovery of Tom Brady’s missing jerseys:
Feb. 6, 2005 - Ortega poses with Tom Brady for a photo at Super Bowl XXXIX
Ortega has been attending Super Bowls for over a decade, and met Brady in Jacksonville when the Patriots beat the Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX, according to Eric Edholm of Yahoo! Sports . Ortega took a photo with Brady, which is generally a frowned-upon practice for credentialed media members. For the record, so is stealing jerseys.
Feb. 1, 2015 - Patriots win Super Bowl XLIX; Brady’s jersey goes missing
While it wasn’t publicized, someone walked off with Brady’s game-worn jersey from New England’s 28-24 Super Bowl win over the Seahawks.
Feb. 5, 2017 - Patriots win Super Bowl LI; Brady’s jersey goes missing again
Brady and the Patriots executed a dramatic comeback win over the Atlanta Falcons, taking a Super Bowl to overtime for the first time in NFL history. After the game, Brady discovered that his jersey was missing . He appeared to be “flustered” and immediately enlisted help from team equipment managers and security personnel.

— Alan Springer (@AlanSpringer) February 6, 2017
Feb. 6, 2017 - Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick enlists the aid of the Texas Rangers
Patrick cited the state of Texas’ commitment to hospitality as he charged the Texas Rangers (the law enforcement agency, not the baseball team ) with finding Brady’s missing jersey.
"In Texas we place a very high value on hospitality and football," Patrick said, according to the Texas Tribune . " Tom Brady's jersey has great historical value and is already being called 'the most valuable NFL collectable ever.' It will likely go into the Hall of Fame one day. It is important that history does not record that it was stolen in Texas."
Feb. 8, 2017 - Houston police chief is less than enthused about tracking down the jersey
The Houston Police Department was also on the case, as it was clearly its jurisdiction. Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo tried to keep things in perspective.
“It might be the highest priority for [the] lieutenant governor,” Acevedo said via The Statesman . “I can tell you we had three homicides the night of the Super Bowl in the city of Houston, and we’d like to find it. But I don’t think we’re burning the midnight oil worrying about a jersey.”
Feb. 10, 2017 - Patriots hope Brady’s missing jersey is just on the equipment truck
Law enforcement hoped that the jersey, and James White’s game-winning touchdown ball, would be found on the Patriots equipment truck . The truck had not been thoroughly searched, but when it was unloaded, the jersey was not there. White’s touchdown ball was found , though details on its recovery are unavailable.
Feb. 14, 2017 - Robert Kraft compares Brady’s jersey to “a great Chagall or Picasso”
“It’s very sad to me that someone would do something like this. It’s like taking a great Chagall or Picasso or something. You can never display it. And somehow, I feel there’ll be some news that’ll clear this up in the not-too-distant future,” Kraft said to Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo .
Yes, he really said that .
Feb. 21, 2017 - Brady’s jersey valued at $500,000 in police report
Maybe the jersey isn’t quite as valuable as priceless works of art , but $500,000 is still a pretty penny. That’s how it was valued in a Houston Police Department report obtained by TMZ .
Feb. 22, 2017 - Tom Brady initiates his own search for the missing jersey
Brady’s elaborate suspect board included Lady Gaga , Gollum, and Julian Edelman. It did not, however, appear to include anyone posing as a member of the international media. So maybe this investigation was better left to professionals.
March 20, 2017 - Brady’s Super Bowl LI and Super Bowl XLIX jerseys are recovered with help from the FBI
The NFL confirmed Jay Glazer’s report that league security, working in tandem with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, had recovered Brady’s missing jerseys . The jerseys were found in the possession of a person who had posed as a member of the international media, according to the league’s statement.
One might think the FBI would have more pressing issues to attend to, but it had to become involved because the theft of Brady’s jerseys was an international issue.
Glazer said on Fox Sports’ Undisputed on Monday that the person who took the jersey had followed Bill Belichick into the Patriots locker room after the game. Video from the locker room revealed that this “person of interest” was carrying a backpack and left with something under his arm.
Acevedo tweeted that the Houston Major Offenders division had located the jerseys in Mexico. He confirmed that the jerseys had been recovered with assistance from Mexican authorities. According to the Associated Press , the Houston Police Department was operating off of a tip from an informant.
The NFL is referring all questions about the case to the FBI, because the investigation is ongoing. The FBI’s satellite office in Boston currently has both jerseys and is working to authenticate them, according to the Associated Press report.
March 20, 2017 - The jersey thief also had a Broncos helmet believed to be Von Miller’s
Glazer noted that the same person may have taken Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller’s helmet following Denver’s win. A Broncos helmet was found in his possession , and the team believes it is the one Miller wore during his MVP performance in Denver’s Super Bowl 50 win. The helmet is currently considered evidence, but it will be returned to the Broncos, according to Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post .
March 20, 2017 - La Prensa releases statement suggesting former executive C. Martin Mauricio Ortega was involved in the situation
La Prensa, a Mexican news organization, released a statement Monday afternoon indicating that Ortega, a former executive with the organization, had been involved in the jersey theft.
The statement confirms that Ortega resigned from his position with La Prensa on March 14, and his resignation was accepted. La Prensa was unaware of his involvement in the jersey theft at the time of his resignation and reacted to the news “with total surprise and disappointment.”

March 21, 2017 - Reports emerge about Ortega’s interest in NFL memorabilia
During the week of the Super Bowl, Ortega reportedly had multiple items signed by former players, according to Eric Edholm of Yahoo! Sports . These items included a jersey signed by Kurt Warner and a book signed by Emmitt Smith. Getting autographs is prohibited for credentialed media members.
Ortega was reportedly seen at sports memorabilia auctions near the NFL Experience during Super Bowl week auctioning off items he owned. Edholm said that when authorities executed the search warrant at his home, an entire room of NFL memorabilia was found.
Later in the day, Jay Glazer is on The Herd, and footage of the heist is shown.
March 23, 2017 - The jersey is returned to New England
The sage officially came to an end with the return of the jersey on Thursday, March 23.
“It was great to have both jerseys returned to Gillette Stadium today,” Patriots owner Robert Kraft said. I don’t know that any agency could have accomplished this independently, but collectively multiple agencies - both in the U.S. and in Mexico - worked together to achieve the goal of retrieving the stolen property.
“It is another example of the importance of teamwork and what can be accomplished when everyone works together. We appreciate the effort of everyone involved and look forward to returning these jerseys to Tom when he gets back to New England."
April 3, 2017 - Robert Kraft returns both jerseys to Tom Brady
We all thought it was finished, but the saga continued Monday. Patriots owner Robert Kraft returned both missing jerseys to their rightful owner.

April 5, 2017 - The jerseys were found with the help of a 19-year-old Patriots fan in Seattle
The jerseys would not have been found without the help of Dylan Wagner, a 19-year-old Patriots fan and memorabilia collector in Seattle . Wagner sold a jersey to Ortega in December 2016, and the two exchanged photos of their collections. Ortega’s collection prominently featured Brady’s Super Bowl XLIX jersey, which stood out to Wagner. His photos gave law enforcement the evidence needed to secure a search warrant.
And that’s that.

Detailed security footage shows the alleged journey of Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl jersey
The strange case of Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl jersey keeps getting weirder. 
The piece of NFL history was allegedly stolen from Brady after the Patriots quarterback led a comeback win in Super Bowl 51 last month. 
Now the shirt has been reportedly traced to a Mexican newspaper editor — and security footage apparently shows just how Brady's jersey was allegedly swiped.

Tom Brady’s jersey thief may have also stolen Von Miller’s Super Bowl helmet and cleats
Three Super Bowls, three thefts, one individual.
On Monday, we learned that Tom Brady’s missing jersey from Super Bowl LI was found by the FBI . The jersey he wore in Super Bowl XLIX against the Seahawks was found too, something none of us knew was missing in the first place. The primary suspect? A member of the international media.
But there was one more plot twist.
FOX Sports’ Jay Glazer says that the same person may have taken Von Miller’s helmet and possibly his cleats from Super Bowl 50.

Cameron Wolfe of The Denver Post confirmed what Glazer reported on Twitter Monday afternoon:

— Cameron Wolfe (@CameronWolfe) March 20, 2017
Wolfe added that while the helmet — believed to potentially belong to Von Miller — is considered evidence, it will be returned to the Broncos .
This would be quite the heist if this individual was able to get all of that memorabilia. That’s three consecutive Super Bowls in which they took prized items from MVPs. He was a pair of pants away from a full uniform.
It couldn’t have been much consolation, but Miller did get some awesome new cleats from Adidas shortly after the Super Bowl.

It really makes you wonder how somebody could pull something like that off in three consecutive Super Bowls without getting caught. At least, not immediately. The Super Bowl is supposed to be one of the most secure events in the United States yearly, yet something like this happened.
Three times, apparently.

Video emerges of suspect in Patriots locker room linked to Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl jersey
Fox Sports 1
The case of Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl jersey took a bizarre turn on Monday when the NFL confirmed that the jersey, along with a second Brady jersey from Super Bowl 49, had been found in the possession of a "credentialed member of the international media."
The jerseys — with the Super Bowl 51 jersey valued at $500,000 — were recovered as part of an investigation involving the FBI and other law enforcement agencies. Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reported that the jersey was recovered in Mexico.
Now Fox Sports 1 has obtained video showing who they say is the suspect in the case. That footage was aired on "The Herd with Colin Cowherd."
The suspect can be seen entering the Patriots' locker room after Super Bowl 51, carrying a bag on one shoulder just a few people behind Bill Belichick. Later, he is seen leaving the locker room with something under his left arm.
"We're not saying that's who did it," Glazer said. "But that is absolutely a video and a suspect that they have zoned in on."
While we don't know how long the suspect was in the locker room, as he is is leaving, players can be seen still entering the locker room. The suggestion is that he was not in the locker room very long.
Glazer also reported that the suspect may not be an actual media member, and may also be a suspect in the disappearance of Von Miller's helmet and/or cleats after the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 victory.
Glazer also suggested that this was possibly a premeditated crime as opposed to a crime of opportunity committed by a media member who just happened to stumble upon the jersey.
"I don't believe he's actually a member of the media, but he was posing as a member of the international media," Glazer said on Fox Sports 1.

NFL insider Jay Glazer reveals incredible details of FBI's effort to catch international thief behind Tom Brady's missing $500,000 Super Bowl jersey
Ronald Martinez/Getty
The curious case of Tom Brady's missing Super Bowl jersey keeps getting deeper and stranger.
On Monday, the NFL announced that it had tracked down Brady's game-worn jersey, which went missing after his victory over the Falcons in Super Bowl 51.
NFL security, working with the FBI and the Houston Police Department, found the missing jersey, along with Brady's missing jersey from Super Bowl 49, in Mexico.
The league said that the jerseys "were found in the possession of a credentialed member of the international media."
On the FS1 show "Undisputed", NFL insider Jay Glazer provided additional details about the saga, which he prefaced by saying that if he pitched this story as a screenplay, Hollywood executives would laugh him out of the room for writing something too unbelievable. 
Here's how Glazer explained the situation:
"The FBI, along with NFL security, Patriots security, and Houston P.D., they went through all this video to try and track somebody down. ... And they zeroed in on a person of interest. That person of interest, from what I'm told, is an international member of the media. I don't believe he's actually a member of the media, but he was posing as a member of the international media."
This suspect, Glazer reports, has been up to these tricks for years:
"[He] got credentialed, it's been going on for some time. And he actually, from what I've been told, they have him going into the locker room right behind Bill Belichick, as if he's with the team. Goes in there, loiters around for a little while, and is seen leaving the locker room... with something under his arm."
After pouring over the video and landing on the person of interest, Glazer says, the investigation had to work with authorities in Mexico in order to get the stolen goods back onto U.S. soil.
From there, the jerseys had to be authenticated in order to confirm that they were legitimately worn by Brady during the Super Bowls. With all of that taken care of, Glazer reports, the jerseys will be returned to the Patriots sometime this week. 
But the story doesn't end here. 
Glazer noted that the Denver Broncos also believe that this person of interest may be the person who took Von Miller's helmet and/or cleats after the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 victory. 
After Glazer explained the situation, show host Skip Bayless asked what many have wondered — why did the FBI need to get involved? 
Glazer provided two reasons. First, the FBI got involved when the case moved overseas. Second, Brady's jersey from Super Bowl 51 is, according to Glazer, valued at $500,000, which was the estimate placed on what the jersey might fetch in an auction. According to Glazer's sources, the thief may have a slew of other items, meaning the total sum of stolen goods could be worth over a million dollars. Considering how much money was taken overseas, Glazer noted, the FBI had no choice but to get involved. 
In the end, the case may be nearing closure, but not all the details have reached the public. Glazer said he was working to track down the video that helped the investigators identify the thief, whose name has not been revealed.
Until that happens, let's all take some solace that Tom Brady finally his jersey back.

Tom Brady’s Missing Super Bowl LI Jersey Has Been Found

Tom Brady’s missing jersey from Super Bowl LI has been found after a nearly two-month-long search following the New England Patriots’ historic victory over the Atlanta Falcons in February.
According to Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo , the jersey was recovered in Mexico by the Houston Police Department with help from the FBI and Mexican authorities.
The NFL also released a statement on the ongoing investigation, explaining that the jersey — along with another worn by Brady at Super Bowl XLIX — was found in the possession of a “credentialed member of the international media.”
“Through the cooperation of the NFL and New England Patriots’ security teams, the FBI and other law enforcement authorities, the Super Bowl LI jersey worn last month by MVP Tom Brady has been recovered,” the NFL said. “Also retrieved during the ongoing investigation was the jersey Brady wore in the Patriots’ victory in Super Bowl XLIX against the Seattle Seahawks in 2015.”

Tom Brady's Super Bowl 51 jersey has been found in possession of a member of the international media in Mexico
Gregory Payan/AP
Tom Brady is going to get his Super Bowl 51 jersey back.
On Monday,  the NFL announced on Monday that Tom Brady's jerseys from Super Bowl 51 and Super Bowl 49 have been found, thanks to the help of the NFL security department, the FBI, and the Houston Police Department.
The NFL said the jerseys "were found in the possession of a credentialed member of the international media." The Austin American-Statesman reported that the jerseys were found in Mexico.
Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported that the Super Bowl 51 jersey was "stolen by someone posing as international media member."
Glazer elaborated further on Fox Sports' "Undisputed," saying the NFL, Patriots, and Houstin Police all watched security footage looking for clues before finding a person of interest, a credentialed media member, who entered the Patriots locker room after the game.
"That person of interest, from what I'm told, is an international member of the media. I don't believe he's actually a member of the media, but he was posing as a member of the international media. Got credentialed, it's been going on for some time. And he actually, from what I've been told, they have him going into the locker room right behind Bill Belichick, as if he's with the team. Goes in there, loiters around for a little while, and is seen leaving the locker room... with something under his arm."
Additionally, according to Glazer, the Broncos believe the same person who stole Brady's jerseys may have stolen Von Miller's helmet and/or cleats after the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 win.
Former Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo tweeted about finding the jerseys:

The Super Bowl 51 jersey went missing almost immediately after the game last month in Houston. Brady said he set it down at his locker and it was gone when he returned. The NFL and Houston police then began looking for it.
According to Glazer, authorities had to verify the jerseys were indeed Brady's and are expected to return them to Brady and the Patriots some time this week.

You would think that with everything going on in the United States, the FBI would be pretty tied up these days. Who’s got time for trivial matters when there is an ongoing Russian hacking investigation, among many other things? Apparently, the organization does have enough bandwidth to look for a football jersey. But not just any jersey: Tom Brady’s jersey. It appears, per a league statement, that this thing got international and the big guns were needed:

Not only was Brady’s 2017 Super Bowl jersey recovered, but it looks like his 2015 one was too.
The FBI isn’t the first super important law enforcement agency to be involved in this thing either. The Texas Rangers originally looked into the theft . The threads were valued at $500,000 dollars and Patriots owner Robert Kraft went a little overboard in his valuation of the jersey :
“It’s very sad to me that someone would do something like this. It’s like taking a great Chagall or Picasso or something. You can never display it. And somehow, I feel there’ll be some news that’ll clear this up in the not-too-distant future,” Kraft told Fox Business Network’s Maria Bartiromo .
Now it appears that all is well, and Brady can have his sweaty grass-stained overblown T-shirt back for all time.

Another missing piece of Super Bowl gear makes it was back to its rightful owner.
On Wednesday, the FBI reunited Von Miller with the helmet he wore in the Denver Broncos’ 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. It comes just two weeks after Tom Brady’s missing jersey from Super Bowl LI was returned to him .
The FBI investigation was initiated after Brady’s jersey went missing following the Patriots’ comeback against the Falcons in Houston. Not only did they find Brady’s jersey from this year’s Super Bowl, they retrieved Brady’s Super Bowl XLIX jersey from 2015. Miller’s helmet from Super Bowl 50 was also found, all at the home of a credentialed journalist in Mexico.
Miller, who won Super Bowl MVP honors for his performance, looked happy to have received his historic helmet back into his hands:

“I didn't even know my helmet was missing. That's how crazy last year was,” Miller said last week . “But we had the best of the best, the finest investigators on the whole ordeal. … They were able to find Tom's jersey, and they were able to find my helmet, as well. Hats off to those guys.”
For somebody’s life to be so busy and filled with other wonderful things happening, like attending the NBA All-Star festivities, being on Saturday Night Live and Dancing With the Stars , and hanging out with Drake , it must be nice to just forget about the helmet you wore in a Super Bowl.
We all should try to live life like Von Miller.

Read on Business Insider | Share | Tweet

Tom Brady has his Super Bowl jersey back, but maybe not for long.
After the jersey was stolen and found in possession of a member of the international media , Brady showed off the returned jersey in front of the Boston Red Sox crowd on opening day.
That is, until Rob Gronkowski ran up behind him and snatched it, in an obvious nod toward the strange scandal.
Luckily, for Brady, he was able to chase Gronk down and get it back.
It doesn't seem that this incident will require poring over hours of security video.

Someone please find this jersey so we can all sleep at night.
More than two weeks after Super Bowl LI, nobody has seen Tom Brady’s jersey and the search is still on. The hunt for the presumably stolen jersey is pretty serious too, with the Houston Police Department valuing the piece of memorabilia at $500,000 in a police report obtained by TMZ .
While Brady has been to six other Super Bowls and the win over the Atlanta Falcons earned him a fifth championship ring, the missing jersey hasn’t been treated as just another piece of memorabilia for the quarterback. Patriots owner Robert Kraft compared the heist to “taking a great Chagall or Picasso.”
Two years ago, a Picasso sold for $179.4 million and in 2010 a Chagall sold for $4.18 million . Art sales have slumped a bit recently , but if Brady’s jersey is worth $500,000, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration by Kraft.
An interesting note in the police report, as pointed out by TMZ, is that the case is being investigated by Houston P.D.’s police impersonation and swindle squads in the Major Offenders Division.
One day after the jersey went missing, Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick promised to have the Texas Rangers help with the search. But maybe, like Houston Police Chief Art Acevedo said , they’re more worried about things like — oh, I don’t know — homicides, instead of a jersey.
Let’s all hope they solve the case so our long national nightmare of the missing jersey can finally come to an end.
