Tom Brady says he gave a Bitcoin to a Buccaneers fan to thank him for giving up the ball for the 600th career TD Pass
Byron Kennedy is something of a local Tampa legend after this weekend, collecting and then returning the ball from Tom Brady’s 600th career touchdown pass. The buccaneers have would have accepted to give Kennedy, 29, a package deal that included season tickets and autographed memorabilia in exchange for the ball he originally received from celebrant Mike Evans. But Brady insisted on “Monday Night Football” with Peyton and Eli Manning that he is helping by offering Kennedy a Bitcoin.
“Byron lost all of his power giving up the ball,” Brady joked with the Manning brothers. “He should have held it.… (But) I’m giving him a Bitcoin too, so at the end of the day I think he’s doing pretty well.”
Worth just under $ 63,000, the digital currency would mark one of the biggest prizes Kennedy received in return for accepting the Bucs’ abrupt game-day demand. The team has already pledged to give him two signed jerseys and a signed Brady helmet, a signed Mike Evans jersey and the wide receiver’s playing cleats, plus a $ 1,000 credit to the Buccaneers store and tickets to. season for the remainder of 2021 and all of 2022.
Speaking of finances, Brady also joked on the Manning Brothers’ show that Clyde Christensen, his quarterback coach, shouldn’t be a role model for his TB12 fitness program, as Peyton suggested.
“Are you trying to short the TB12 stock here?” Brady said holding back his laugh. “That’s not right. I need Clyde to eat unpackaged food. Too much of what he eats actually comes in a wrapper and you have to tear it up. I say, ‘Clyde, just because it’ is popcorn doesn’t mean it has no calories. You can’t eat eight popcorns at one time. You can’t do that. “
