Bucs legend Tom Brady seeking to acquire limited ownership rights of NFL giants Raiders

After announcing his retirement decision for the second time in February this year, fans longed for the NFL GOAT Tom Brady to make a U-turn to glorify the football field once again and many rumors were swirling in the league claiming the former Tampa Bay Buccaneers legend to sign with Las Vegas, replacing Derek Carr as the starting quarterback.

Putting an end to all the rumors, Brady is indeed coming back to the NFL, however, the quarterback is heading back to the league as an owner and working on a deal to own a piece of Vegas sports franchise.

Tom Brady may agree to terms to become a limited Raiders partner

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the news of the retired Bucs QB Tom Brady being involved in “deep discussions” with the Las Vegas Raiders to join as a limited partner, potentially setting up a partnership with owner Mark Davis for the second time after becoming a minority owner of the Las Vegas Aces, the best WNBA team in 2023.

The former New England Patriots star was rumored to be joining the Miami Dolphins as a limited partner, leading the franchise to get fined $1.5 million and stripped of their 2023 first-round pick due to violating the NFL’s tampering policy.

If the rumor becomes true, the 45-year-old is expected to become the most popular former football player to be among the owners of a franchise, however, 24 current team owners would have to vet and approve the deal to make it happen.

Tom can also enjoy a reunion with the former Patriots offensive coordinator and Raiders’ current head coach Josh McDaniels, albeit the seven-time Super Bowl champion will not have any operational control or authority over the club in business or football matters.

The three-time league MVP amassed $83.9 million in annual earnings last year, making him the world’s ninth-highest-paid player on Forbes’ 2022 list, hence, inking himself as the multiple team owner’s lists can’t be a gigantic task for him.

As of now, both Brady and the Raiders are staying tight-lipped about the details of the potential deal as the NFL declined to comment, a Raiders spokesperson didn’t return calls or texts and the QB’s agent Don Yee declined comment per ESPN. With the NFL offseason in full swing, it is expected that more information will become available in the coming weeks.

If the former Patriots star successfully becomes a part-owner of the Raiders, it remains to be seen how his involvement will impact the team’s fortunes. However, his experience and expertise in the NFL could certainly prove to be invaluable assets as the Raiders look to build a winning culture in Las Vegas.
