Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl jersey has been recovered, according to a source.
And it was a two-fer. Not only did the FBI and NFL Security locate the SB51 jersey that was lifted last month, they also found Brady's jersey from SB49, which apparently was taken by the same individual and pawned outside the U.S.
The NFL confirmed the recovery of both jerseys in a statement Monday.
"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. 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. The items were found in the possession of a credentialed member of the international media," NFL spokesman Brian Mccarthy said. "Due to the ongoing investigation, we would refer any additional questions to the FBI."
According to FOX Sports' Jay Glazer, the league is also investigating whether the same person who stole Brady's jersey also swiped Von Miller's cleats and helmet following the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 victory.

More details should emerge on this during the week including who stole the shirts and how, exactly, that individual happened to be in the Patriots locker room.
