According to league officials, Brady realized the jersey was stolen immediately after the game.

Tom Brady's Super Bowl LI jersey has been found. It was a long way from home.

Houston police, with the help of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Mexican authorities, tracked down both Brady's Super Bowl LI jersey and one worn by Brady in a previous Super Bowl that had been missing for two years.

In an interview on the FOX Business Network's "Morning With Maria", Steiner Sports CEO Brandon Steiner said the whole uniform set, including Brady's helmet, trousers and cleats, would likely fetch half a million dollars at auction.

Brady discovered his jersey was missing shortly after returning to the locker room at NRG stadium on February 5.

"It's unfortunate because that's a nice piece of memorabilia", he said at the time.

Patrick weighed in again Monday morning to celebrate the solved crime.

Investigation began immediately following Super Bowl 51, as Brady could not locate his jersey - which Police valued at $500,000 - after placing it inside his bag. The alleged culprit? A man credentialed as a member of the global media who may have worked as an executive for the newspaper La Prensa in the past. Note to the global media: "Don't Mess with Texas".

Acevedo wasn't the only Texan to boast some state pride while discussing the discovery of the jersey.

The company apologized and said that its leaders had been unaware of "the regrettable and reprehensible actions (he) presumably committed", and said that it had not been contacted by Mexican authorities about the case. The case is expected to go to the U.S. Attorney Office for prosecution.

The NFL on Monday announced that Tom Brady's stolen jersey has been found and is being returned to Super Bowl MVP.

Still, Acevedo could not resist a joke at the thief's expense.
