Tom Brady accidentally walked into the “wrong home” while looking for his new Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator, Byron Leftwich, a neighbor shared.
“I’m sitting here, and I see this big shadow come up to my front door … and I hear my doorknob turning … and I’m like, What the hell,” Leftwhich’s nextdoor neighbor/homeowner David Kramer told TMZ in a piece published Thursday about the incident that happened earlier this month.

“Like, who’s coming in my house?” he added. “I literally was just sitting here, and I watch this tall guy walk in my house.” (RELATED: Here’s The Message Tom Brady Had On Instagram During Super Bowl Parade: ‘6 #StillHere’)
The homeowner continued, “And he goes, ‘How’s it going, man?’ And sarcastically I’m like, ‘I don’t know. You tell me, dude.’ Like, who are you?” (RELATED: 17 Sexy Photos Of Gisele Bundchen [SLIDESHOW])
“And then he looked at me with the most confused face,” Kramer explained. “I’ll never forget it for the rest of my life.”
“He just goes, ‘Am I in the wrong house?'” he added. “I said, ‘I think so. But who are you looking for? Where are you supposed to be?’ And he said, ‘Is this Byron’s house?'”
A source with knowledge of the situation confirmed the incident to ESPN and said that Brady and Leftwich were trying to follow social distancing guidelines, having Brady come to pick up materials from his new coach rather than meeting with him. The source said Leftwich had been expecting him, which might explain why Brady didn’t knock first.
Kramer said when the former New England Patriots’ star QB realized the mix-up, he couldn’t have been nicer.
“He was like, ‘I am so sorry! I am so sorry!'” the homeowner explained. “Grabs his bags and just is gone. I don’t think I’ve seen someone leave a house faster!””
