Fan who returned record-setting TD ball has 1 request for Tom Brady
Former Michigan quarterback Tom Brady accomplished something historic in the NFL by passing for his 600th touchdown in the 38-3 home game vs. Chicago. A piece of history was almost lost forever as wide receiver Mike Evans gave the ball that Brady scored his 600th touchdown with to a lucky Tampa Bay fan in the stands.
A piece of history needed to be preserved as Tampa Bay tried to persuade the fan to get the ball back in exchange for several items. The fan gracefully gave the ball to the organization.
In return, the fan reportedly received two signed jerseys, a helmet from Brady, an Evans jersey and his game cleats, $1,000 of team store credit, and finally, two season tickets for the rest of 2021 and the 2022 NFL season.
As a gesture of thanks to Byron Kennedy (dude who returned Brady ball), #Bucs are giving him 2 signed jerseys and helmet from Tom, an Evans jersey & his game cleats, 2 season passes for rest of 2021 and ‘22, and $1K credit to team store

When asked by Andrew Siciliano if he wants to renegotiate the deal with Brady, Byron Kennedy only asked for a round of golf with the QB. This is a reasonable fan asking for a reasonable request from a player who made NFL history.

It will be interesting to see whether or not Kennedy’s request is met in the offseason.
