Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan Byron Kennedy was a popular man on Sunday. Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans accidentally gave Kennedy one of the balls he caught for a touchdown on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium against the Chicago Bears, but this one had extra value.
Kennedy received the ball from Brady’s 600th career passing touchdown and the team quickly worked to get it back.
During the broadcast, CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson said the team was going to give Kennedy a different ball and a signed jersey. But according to Darren Rovell, Kennedy got a lot more including a signed helmet, cleats, season tickets, and signed jerseys from Brady and Evans.
There were reports that the ball could have fetched $500,000 at an open auction.
JUST IN: The deal has been made with the Bucs fan who gave up the Brady ball.
He will receive:
2 signed jerseys + a helmet from Tom.
A signed Mike Evans jersey + his game cleats.
A $1K credit at the Bucs team store.
2 season tickets for the remainder of this season + next

That is actually quite the haul, but would you have made the deal?
Sure, the $1,000 credit to the Buccaneers team store is a bit week, but at least he can get some new gear when he shows up next year to sit in his season ticket seats. All in all, it’s great for everyone involved. And not to sound cheesy, but the memory of that moment tops it all.
