HOUSTON -

Two security workers at Reliant Stadium say they were fired for taking a picture with New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady after Sunday's game.

Joel Williams and Christopher Moore worked under contract for Contemporary Services Corporation.

CSC released a statement which read, "It is strictly against CSC policy for its employees to request photos or autographs from players. CSC stands by its decision to terminate the two employees who violated this policy."

Williams and Moore said they were let go right after snapping the souvenir photo with Brady.

The two say they have taken pictures with other celebrities and were never warned or punished for it.

Williams believes Sunday's loss to the Patriots and Brady played into his removal. The Patriots beat the Texans 34-31.
