The FBI continues to excel at recovering stolen sports memorabilia. 

After the organization found Tom Brady's missing jerseys from the Super Bowl, it returned Von Miller's missing helmet to the Denver Broncos star Wednesday, per TMZ.

Officials found it in the home of Mexican reporter Mauricio Ortega, who also was responsible for stealing Brady's jerseys.

"I didn't even know my helmet was missing. That's how crazy last year was," Miller said earlier this month when he learned of the recovery, per Ben Swanson of the team's official site. "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."

Miller was named MVP of Super Bowl 50 when he tallied 2.5 sacks and two forced fumbles in the 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers.

His helmet was found at Ortega's house along with Brady's jerseys from the New England Patriots wins at Super Bowl XLIX and LI.
