TAMPA BAY, Fla. — Tom Brady made NFL history again this weekend and a former Texas A&M standout helped him do it.
Brady became the first player to throw 600 career touchdown passes.
During the first quarter of the Tampa Bay Bucaneers 38-3 win over the Chicago Bears, Brady threw a nine yard TD pass to Mike Evans.
Evans, who didn't initially know the significance of the TD, gave the ball to a fan in the stands who was wearing his No. 13 jersey.
His reaction on the sideline was priceless.

It all worked out well in the end.
A member of the Bucs staff negotiated with the fan to get the 600th TD ball back.

The historic TD ball is worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Ken Goldin, founder of Goldin Auctions — which specializes in sports memorabilia and collectibles — tweeted the ball “easily” could go for $500,000.
