The FBI has recovered Tom Brady's stolen Super Bowl 51 jersey and the Houston PD says it was tracked to MEXICO!!!
The NFL says Tom's Super Bowl 49 jersey -- which was ALSO stolen (secretly, apparently) -- was recovered as well.
Officials believe it was jacked by the same person and moved outside the U.S. ... so says CSNNE's Tom Curran.
Jay Glazer -- who first reported the story -- says the FBI teamed up with the NFL security team for the recovery -- and is now in the process of returning the jerseys to Brady.
So, who's the thief??
The NFL says the items were found in the possession of a "credentialed member of the international media."
Of course, the jersey went missing in the minutes after Brady and the Patriots beat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.
Video later surfaced (courtesy of our friends at Yahoo Sports) showing Brady searching through his equipment bag for the jersey while insisting that he "100 percent" put it in there.
Multiple law enforcement agencies joined the search -- including the Texas Rangers. Brady valued the jersey at $500,000 on the police report filed in Houston.
