NFL sent every team a memo to make sure players don’t breaky any more tablets.
Last week, a frustrated Tom Brady went viral after he smashed a tablet on the sideline.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that three tablets were broken on the Bucs sideline, and that Brady broke two of them himself.
“Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady broke two tablets out of frustration during last Sunday’s victory over the New Orleans Saints, sources told ESPN.
A third tablet also was stepped on and broken on the Buccaneers’ sideline, sources said, leaving Tampa Bay short of tablets and wide receivers against the Saints.”
According to Fox Sports’ Jay Glazer,g every team has now received a memo from the NFL in which the league is threatening to penalize any team in which a player breaks a tablet.
“There was actually more than one broken tablet, Tom Brady earlier this week broke two tablets…As a result of that one GM said “we all got a Tom Brady memo.”
“We all got warned this week that if any of our players smash anything given out by the league, there will be penalties and significant fines”
Here’s a video of Glazer’s report.

Brady joked about breaking the tablet in an Instagram video after last week’s game.
“Great win to get to 2 and 0. Shoutout to the D for coming up huge again. The ugly ones count too. Sorry for breaking that tablet, I think it’s going to be another Twitter meme or something like that,” Brady said. “Flying home to Tampa, get ready for next week [with] Green Bay coming to town. Let’s go!”
