On Sunday, Tom Brady made NFL history when he connected with Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans for his 600th career TD pass.
But following the score, Evans did not realize it was Brady’s 600th TD and he gave the ball to a fan.
Fortunately, when approached by a Buccaneers rep, the fan graciously gave the ball back so that Brady has it.
On Monday, it was revealed that the Buccaneers did their best to compensate as they gave him the following:
*2 signed Brady jerseys + a helmet
*Signed Mike Evans jersey & his game cleats
*$1000 team store credit
*2 season passes for the rest of this season + the 2022 season.
Not too shabby but I am sure many will point out that the fan could have gotten quite a bit of cash had he decided to keep the ball. Thankfully, Kennedy understood the ball is important to Brady and handled this situation with pure class.
Bucs are giving Byron Kennedy the following for the No. 600 TD football: Two signed jerseys and a helmet from Tom Brady, a signed Mike Evans jersey & his game cleats, a $1K credit at our team store, and two season passes for the remainder of this season as well as next season.
