Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer first reported NFL security and the FBI found Brady’s jersey and were in the process of returning it to the Patriots. Glazer added the FBI became involved because the jersey was found on “foreign soil.” He then reported the “NFL believes the jersey was stolen by someone posing as [an] international media member.”
Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reported the person in question is Mauricio Ortega, noting his newspaper will be releasing a statement on the incident. Rapoport, via Conor Orr of NFL.com, added Ortega is a former executive with Diario La Prensa, a newspaper in Honduras. Glazer later reported, via Will Brinson of CBS Sports, that the Denver Broncos believe Ortega “may have also taken Von Miller’s cleats and jersey” after Super Bowl 50.
Brady’s Super Bowl jersey became a hot topic of discussion following the Patriots’ 34-28 overtime victory over the Atlanta Falcons.
