If you work at Reliant Stadium and have an opportunity to take a photo with one of the best quarterbacks of all-time, don't even think about it.

Two security guards at Reliant Stadium did just that on Sunday after the Patriots beat the Texans 34-31, and they were fired. The two guards stopped to take a picture with Tom Brady and were without jobs soon thereafter.

WHDH TV got a video interview with Joel Williams, one of those relieved of his duties after posing with Brady. He said he and another person were fired moments after snapping pictures with the Patriots quarterback.

"I wasn't threatening anybody," Williams said. "The sideline experience was over. The game was over. I was just really congratulating the winning team. There have been times before when I've taken pictures with other people that weren't Tom Brady, or winners, somebody who just defeated the Texans, it was perfectly okay."

Employees are not allowed to pose for pictures with players, according to the company that runs security at the stadium.
