Tampa Bay Buccaneers fan Byron Kennedy handed Tom Brady’s 600th touchdown ball back to team staff after wide receiver Mike Evans mistakenly gave the historic ball away but even Brady believes Kennedy should’ve held out a little longer. 

During an appearance on “Monday Night Football” simulcast with brothers Peyton and Eli Manning, Brady said there were “a lot of negotiations” to get the ball back but noted that Kennedy “should’ve held it” a little longer in order to get a bit more from the Bucs.

Ken Goldin, the founder of Goldin Auctions, estimated on Twitter that the ball is worth at minimum $500,000, so to make it a fair trade, Brady confirmed that he was sweetening the deal with some Bitcoin. 

“I think it worked out pretty well,” Brady said Monday night. “I’m also giving him a Bitcoin. That’s pretty cool too. At the end of the day, I think he’s still making out pretty well.”

Brady didn’t seem to acknowledge Kennedy’s request that he play a round of golf with him.
