The entire investigation is the stuff of a 30-for-30 – a lengthy account into serial NFL theft. It started with the Houston police department, dispatching numerous officers into locating Tom Brady’s stolen NFL jersey; following the Super Bowl, the MVP quarterback was seen frantically looking for his game-worn uni, claiming that someone snatched it.

Denver Broncos personnel claim that the individual lifted DeSoto’s Von Miller’s cleats from Super Bowl 50, but they have yet to be discovered as of this writing. The FBI is currently working with Mexico to transport the jerseys – positive negotiations that should be carried over to immigration policy.
The NFL released the following statement:
