It turns out Tom Brady wasn’t the only Super Bowl MVP whose missing equipment was recovered.
In a very strange twist to the case of the New England Patriots quarterback’s missing Super Bowl LI jersey, it was revealed Monday that the jersey, as well as Brady’s Super Bowl XLIX jersey, were found in Mexico. The alleged culprit is Mauricio Ortega, the ex-director of a Mexican tabloid who was credentialed for both Super Bowls.
And when Mexican officials recently raided Ortega’s home, they also found a Denver Broncos helmet from Super Bowl 50 that’s believed to belong to linebacker Von Miller.
Miller also lost his cleats, but TMZ Sports reported they haven’t been recovered.
