Von Miller relieved to have Super Bowl 50 helmet back in Denver

Posted Apr 11, 2017

After the Super Bowl 50 MVP's helmet was stolen, the FBI recovered it in their investigation and returned it to Denver.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — Forgive Von Miller for not noticing.

Between a Super Bowl parade, "Dancing with the Stars" tapings, appearances on numerous talk shows, a "Saturday Night Live" cameo, a visit to the White House and everything else that occupied his busy 2016 offseason, Miller's Super Bowl 50 helmet was the last thing on his mind.

But a year later, after an FBI investigation sparked by the disappearance of Tom Brady's Super Bowl LI jersey, the Super Bowl 50 MVP's helmet was found in Mexico at the home of a credentialed journalist who had stolen several pieces of equipment from previous Super Bowls. When the investigation began, the FBI was unaware Miller’s helmet was even missing, according to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer. The helmet turned up during the course of the investigation and has since been returned to Denver.

"I didn't even know my helmet was missing. That's how crazy last year was," Miller said Tuesday. "But we had the best of the best, the finest investigators on the whole ordeal. … They were able to find Tom's jersey, and they were able to find my helmet, as well. Hats off to those guys."

After travelling to Europe during his downtime in 2017 before the Broncos' offseason program, Miller returned to the surprising news that the helmet was awaiting his retrieval. Though he hasn't gotten it from the authorities yet, Miller plans to return it to its rightful place in his possession as soon as his schedule allows.

"It's here in Denver, but I just haven't had time to go over and get it," he said. "But the helmet is here, and as long as it's close, they've got it."
