Byron Kennedy, the fan who gave back Tom Brady’s 500th touchdown in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers matchup over the Chicago Bears, has not only witnessed the historical 600th touchdown pass by Brady, and received the $500K ball from Mike Evans, but has also acquired an amazing deal in exchange for returning that ball.

Before we share the details of what this lucky fan has received in return, we fancied reminding you of the second best part of that great game, Mike Evans’ reaction after handing the football to a fan and realizing it was a rather special one- the Brady- Evans’ touchdown was obviously the first.

Tom Brady and Mike Evans deliver on fan's promise 

Byron Kennedy might have not kept the football he so gladly attained for a few moments, but he must certainly feel special receiving all these goodies not just to his home, but to his account too.

The tangible goodies he received were two Tom Brady jerseys, one that says “Go Bucks”, and the other’s signed by Brady, “Byron, cant thank you enough, You’re the man.” Kennedy said that’s the one he intends to keep, while the other one will go to his friend who took him to the game. He seems like a person who likes to share.

He also got a helmet, a Mike Evans jersey that he wore at the Eagles game, signed by him, “To Byron. You’re the man. God bless.” In addition, Evans signed the cleats he wore at the game too, so Kennedy now has possession of three-TD catching cleats, including the “historic 600 touchdown ball”.

He can’t wait to display these things at home.

Byron 'Bitcoin' Kennedy?

Now to the real good stuff, the Bitcoin deal.

Brady showed some real appreciation to Kennedy giving the ball back by sending him one whole Bitcoin straight into his account. That might not sound like a grand amount for strangers to crypto currency. But to clarify that thought for you, that would make $60k.

Mojo Muhtadi and Rob Gronkowski Crypto reward

Brady and Evans were not the only ones who thought of rewarding Kennedy for his considerate move. Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski and former WWE Superstar Mojo "Rawley" Muhtadi also teamed up to give Kennedy another $30K in tokens through Beyond Protocol, the crypto company they’ve partnered with.

Kennedy might not have attained the $500K ball, but his Coinbase account is definitely surging in value.
