Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady admitted Monday that he heard from the NFL about tossing and damaging a league-issued Microsoft tablet on the sideline during a shutout loss to the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints beat the Bucs 9–0 on Dec. 19, the first time a Brady-led offense was shut out since 2006.

Worse yet for Brady, his tablet-breaking scene was aired during a nationally televised game.

“I did get a warning from the NFL on that,” Brady said Monday on his SiriusXM podcast. “I can’t throw another Surface, or else I get fined. Imagine that!”

Brady took his frustrations out on the Carolina Panthers last week, leading Tampa Bay to a 32–6 win Sunday. The defending Super Bowl champions clinched the NFC South title.
