Tom Brady is apparently an accurate passer on both land and water.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback tossed the Lombardi Trophy from his boat to another during his team's Super Bowl parade Wednesday:

He fortunately found the boat full of the team's receivers, who were able to haul it in and avoid the potential disaster of it ending up in the water.

Tampa Bay tight end Cameron Brate, who was on the receiving end of Brady's Lombardi Trophy toss, called it "the best catch of my life."

"Unbelievable. That was the best catch of my life," Brate said, perΒ Rick StroudΒ of theΒ Tampa Bay Times.Β "If I had dropped that? I think I would've had to retire."

Brady might not think the Super Bowl is too big of a deal after winning the seventh of his career, but he was probably too cavalier with his handling of the trophy this time around.

The veteran is also used to parades in the street, but the Buccaneers are celebrating by boat in the Hillsborough River this time as a way to maintain social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

With Chris Godwin's phone already a casualty of the river, the players might want to be more careful with the iconic trophy.
