Tom Brady may finally have retired from the NFL but that doesn’t mean he’s done being apart of the league.
Two weeks after ESPN reported that the longtime quarterback had entered ‘deep discussions’ to become a limited partner of the Las Vegas Raiders, Brady and team owner Mark Davis have agreed on a. deal that’ll make the former Patriots and Buccaneers quarterback a minority owner, pending approval of the National Football League:
Back in March, Brady acquired an ownership stake in the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces.
This isn’t the first attempt by Brady to become an owner of an NFL Team. After initially retiring from the Buccaneers after the 2021 season, Brady reportedly attempted to become a minority owner of the Miami Dolphins, a team he also was courting himself to play for. Miami was later penalized by the NFL for engaging in improper communications with Brady while he was still under contract with Tampa Bay.
Meanwhile, the Raiders have several notable ties to the Patriots, who Brady played for the first 20 seasons. Head coach Josh McDaniels was Brady’s offensive coordinator, Dave Ziegler is a product of the New England Patriots’ front office, and even new quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo began his career with the Patriots, as Tom Brady’s backup in 2014.
Before announcing his retirement early this offseason, the 45-year-old Brady had been speculated as a potential target of the Raiders, who had just moved on from Derek Carr and boasted the New England connections.
