Tom Brady's adjustment to life in Tampa, Florida, hasn't been without its mishaps.

The new Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback accidentally walked into the wrong home this month, a source tells PEOPLE.

"He was trying to go to Buccaneers' offensive coordinator Byron Leftwich's house," a source tells PEOPLE. "Because of social distancing, Byron told Tom he'd leave materials for him on the bar in the kitchen, so Tom let himself in."

"But the houses in Tampa look almost identical, and Tom went into the wrong one," the source says. "It was a comedian, David Kramer's house. Tom felt horrible and was so apologetic."

Kramer told TMZ that the incident took place on April 7.

"I literally was just sitting here and I watch this tall guy just walk into my house," Kramer told the outlet. "He didn't even look at me. He just like dropped his duffel bags down on the floor and just kind of like looked up at me and I'll never forget the look on his face."

"He just goes, 'Am I in the wrong house?!'" Kramer said, adding that the athlete apologized profusely for the mix-up.

"He was like, 'I am so sorry! I am so sorry!'" Kramer told TMZ. "Grabs his bags and just is gone. I don't think I've seen someone leave a house faster!"

News of the mishap comes just a few days after Brady, 42, was asked to leave a Tampa park that is currently closed due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Brady poked fun at himself earlier on Thursday for the two misadventures.

"Trespassing in parks, breaking and entering... Just making myself at home in Tompa Bay! 😂" he wrote on Twitter and Instagram Thursday, along with a screen grab of TMZ's report.

Brady and his family are currently renting a 30,000-square-foot waterfront home Tampa Bay mansion from his friend Derek Jeter, who is living in Miami.

"It just worked out perfect for me being here and kind of getting my life started here," Brady told Howard Stern earlier this month of his living situation.

While the house doesn't provide quite as much privacy as he's used to, the quarterback said that he loves all the outdoor space.

"I can do all my football training here, which I really like," he told Stern.
