Tom Brady is not trying to get back on the field with a team, rather he is looking at something much higher than that.
It was always assumed that Tom Brady would remain close to football even in retirement, and the latest news surrounding the quarterback only confirms that assumption.
Brady is now reportedly pursuing an ownership stake in the Raiders, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Seth Wickersham. Per the ESPN report, Brady is in deep discussions to become a limited partner in the franchise.
If this deal actually goes down, it would mark Brady’s second partnership with Raiders owner Mark Davis. They both have a stake in the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces.
Brady’s interest in ownership with the Raiders will not impact his employment status with Fox, Wickersham added.
League policy regarding team ownership and media employment only comes into effect if the owner holds a position of authority at a media company that could impact rights negotiations.
Brady would not be affected by this.
After a 23-year career, Brady retired in February after his Tampa Bay Bucs team got eliminated by the Dallas Cowboys in the playoffs.
Brady spent 20 seasons with the Patriots and the last three seasons with the Buccaneers before officially calling it a career.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
