We may not see him in uniform next season, but it appears as though Tom Brady will be back in the NFL with news that the G.O.A.T. is set to become a minority owner with the Las Vegas Raiders.
Current Raiders owner Mark Davis was quoted as saying, “We’re excited for Tom to join the Raiders.”
Before being made official, though, at least 24 owners have to give the ok, and according to sources, that would not occur in the upcoming spring meetings.
Last summer, there were reports that Brady and Rob Gronkowski could’ve played for Vegas, but according to UFC president Dana White, former Raiders coach Jon Gruden blew up the deal and said he didn’t want the G.O.A.T.
Should he make his way into the owners’ box, it would not be the first time Brady and Mark Davis would be working together as the seven-time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers has a minority stake in the Las Vegas Aces of the WNBA.
When he first walked away from football at the end of the 2021 campaign, Brady reportedly tried to become a minority owner with the Miami Dolphins, a team he also wanted to play for.
Miami was penalized by the league for engaging in improper communications with Brady as he was still under contract in Tampa at the time.
Brady would not have much difficulty acquainting himself with the Raiders’ players and staff as his former offensive coordinator with the Patriots, Josh McDaniels, is presently the head coach, his former backup in New England, Jimmy Garoppolo, is the presumed starting quarterback and general manager, Dave Ziegler was a product of the Pats’ personnel department.
According to reports, Brady’s 10-year, $375 million broadcast deal with FOX which begins in 2024, will be unaffected even if he becomes a minority Raiders owner.
The 15-time Pro Bowler announced in February that he is retiring from football “for good,” having won five Super Bowl MVP trophies and was named the league MVP three times, among the long list of accolades for the man born in San Mateo, California.
