Kyle Juszczyk is asking Tom Brady for help.
In the first quarter of the NFC’s 41-35 loss to the AFC in the 2022 Pro Bowl, the 49ers fullback caught a pass from Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins and ran through a group of six defenders into the end zone for a 14-yard touchdown. It put the first points on the scoreboard for the NFC.
Off-camera, Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans grabbed the football after Juszczyk’s celebration and threw it into the bleachers at Allegiant Stadium.
Evans has a history of doing this.
In Week 7, Evans caught Brady’s 600th touchdown pass and infamously handed it to a Buccaneers fan in the stands. Realizing the history that football made -- no other quarterback in NFL history has reached the milestone -- Tampa Bay’s staff began negotiations with the fan to regain possession of the pigskin.
That Bucs fan ended up getting two signed jerseys and a helmet from Brady, a signed Evans jersey and game-worn cleats, a $1,000 credit at the team store and two season passes for 2021 and ’22. Oh, and a Bitcoin from the all-time great.
So, after the 2022 Pro Bowl concluded, Juszczyk took to Twitter to hilariously ask Brady for a Bitcoin and some assistance getting the football back.
Evans later responded to Juszczyk's plea for help.
Evans also was on the receiving end of a 55-yard score late in the fourth quarter of Tampa Bay’s 30-27 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs. Evans tossed that football into the stands, too.
It ended up being Brady’s final touchdown pass, as he officially announced his retirement from football last week.

Brady’s 600th touchdown. Brady’s final TD pass. Juszczyk’s 14-yard touchdown reception in the Pro Bowl.
Two of the three will have their place in football lore. The other … does too?
Juszczyk has been named to the last six Pro Bowl contests, so there’s a good chance he’ll get another opportunity to score a touchdown in the Pro Bowl next year.
He’ll just have to keep it away from Evans.
