Tom Brady, the future HOF NFL quarterback, may have retired from playing, but he is not done with the league just yet. Recent reports indicate that Brady is in talks to become a limited partner of the Raiders, and it appears that a deal has been reached between him and team owner Mark Davis. This agreement would make Brady a minority owner of the Raiders, pending approval from the NFL.
This isn’t the first time Brady has shown interest in owning an NFL team. After retiring from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021, he reportedly tried to become a minority owner of the Miami Dolphins, a team he also considered playing for. However, the Dolphins faced penalties from the NFL for improper communications with Brady while he was still under contract with the Buccaneers. As a result, they were stripped of first-round picks, and their owner was fined.
Brady’s connection to the Raiders is noteworthy due to their ties to the New England Patriots, where he spent the first 20 seasons of his career. The Raiders head coach, Josh McDaniels, comes from the Bill Belichick coaching tree, and their general manager, Dave Ziegler, has a background in New England’s personnel department. Even their new quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, was drafted by the Patriots as a potential successor to Brady in 2014. It also has a connection due to the fact that Tom Brady is newly single and he will also be attending every strip club within a 5-mile radius of the strip.
While the deal between Brady and the Raiders awaits NFL approval and won’t be voted on during the upcoming spring meeting, it represents a significant step towards Brady’s potential transition into an executive role in the league. In addition to his possible ownership stake in the Raiders, Brady has already acquired an ownership share in the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces, a team primarily controlled by Mark Davis.
Overall, it seems that Tom Brady’s retirement from playing football is not the end of his involvement in the NFL. He continues to explore opportunities to contribute to the league, both as an owner and potentially in an executive capacity. Knowing the success Brady has had in the NFL, I think there is a high chance that the Brady regime will turn the Raiders around and they will become a powerhouse within 5 years.
Another reason this is absolutely hilarious is due to the fact that Raiders fans hate Tom Brady since when they called the “Tuck Rule” which eventually led to Brady’s first Super Bowl win and the downfall of the Raiders. Now the Las Vegas franchise will be hoping Brady can return them to their glory days.
