The Bucs fan who gave back Tom Brady’s 600th TD ball is going to be absolutely sick when he learns how much the ball is reportedly worth.
On Sunday, Bucs wide receiver Mike Evans unknowingly handed Brady’s 600th TD ball to a fan in the stands. After a brief negotiation with security, the fan agreed to give the ball back to Brady.

Hopefully, Tom Brady makes things right and gives the fan an extra signed jersey for giving the ball back.
