Nearly six weeks have passed since the New England Patriots won Super Bowl 51.
One of the bigger “post-game stories” was Tom Brady’s jersey being stolen. Today, the NFL released a statement saying the jersey has been found and it is in their possession.

Allegedly, the same man who claimed to be a member of “the international media” also stole Von Miller’s Super Bowl 50 helmet and cleats. One thing is for certain: there will be even more heightened security for media members from this point forward at major events.
