The NFL said it believes the jersey was stolen by someone who was posing as someone from the international media, according to Glazer.
No other details were immediately released.
The story made headlines across the country after Brady noticed his jersey was missing from the locker room after the historic Super Bowl win.
“The jersey,” Brady said at the time. “I put it in my bag and then came out and it wasn’t there anymore. So it’s unfortunate because that’s a nice piece of memorabilia. So if it shows up on eBay somewhere, someone let me know. Try to track that down.”
