Byron Kennedy, a 29-year-old Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan who initially received the ball from Mike Evans, will be given assorted memorabilia and season tickets for the rest of this season and next in exchange for returning the ball to Brady.
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.— Rick Stroud (@NFLSTROUD) October 25, 2021
That’s not bad, but another piece of Brady memorabilia — the ball from his first career touchdown pass, to Terry Glenn — recently fetched well over $400,000 at an auction.
Kennedy, who said that like Evans, he was unaware of the significance of the ball at first, does have one additional request: he’d like to play a round of golf with Brady.
It’s possible that Kennedy still has more coming his way, as everything listed above is only what the Buccaneers are comping him. Brady did say Sunday that Kennedy would get “something nice” in return.
