Today, the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Boston is pleased to return the jerseys worn by New England Patriots MVP Tom Brady during Super Bowl 49 and Super Bowl 51 to the New England Patriots and National Football League. We know how much this means to the Patriots and football fans everywhere, and we are honored to be able to bring these jerseys back to Foxboro.
This was truly a cooperative effort, and we want to thank our FBI field offices in Chicago, Phoenix and Houston, the United States Attorney’s Offices in the District of Connecticut, the Southern District of Texas, and the District of Arizona, and our Mexico City Legal Attaché. We would also like to thank our law enforcement partners in Mexico, in particular, the Mexican Attorney General’s Office for their invaluable assistance in resolving this matter. Assistance was also provided by the security teams from the NFL and the New England Patriots, the Massachusetts State Police and Houston Police Department.
As this matter remains ongoing, no further comment will be provided.

Special Agent in Charge
