Inside the Story of The Great Super Bowl Jersey Caper
Jenny Vrentas and Robert Klemko share the details of how they reported their story on the investigation of Tom Brady's stolen jersey. Ravens guard John Urschel talks about his second career as a mathematics PhD student at MIT
This week, I sat down for a conversation with The MMQB writers Jenny Vrentas and Robert Klemko and Baltimore Ravens guard John Urschel.
Vrentas and Klemko talk about their groundbreaking story this week on the stolen Tom Brady jersey and the details of the crazy web of law enforcement and collectors who caught the jersey thief. The two explain how this incredible story also has tentacles into a former New York Giants running back. I strongly urge you to read the longform story on the Tom Brady jersey caper. So much new information and color, and you’ll learn exactly how the investigation wove through the West Coast, East Coast and Mexico in a cool whodunit.
Urschel talks about the challenges of his second career (mathematics as an MIT PhD student), on how he got ridiculously good at math at an early age, and on the diametrically different careers he has chosen— math and pro football.
