Tom Brady Reportedly Buying A Stake In Raiders

Last month, Tom Brady bought a minority share in the Las Vegas Aces, the reigning WNBA champions. Brady has long expressed interest in sports franchise ownership. Additionally, he also owns a professional pickleball team. However, it appears that Brady is not done yet. Brady has previously expressed his love for the city of Las Vegas, and it appears that's where his sporting ownership interest currently lies.

According to sources who spoke with ESPN, Brady is once again in talks with billionaire Mark Davis to buy a slice of a Vegas sports franchise. Vegas has become a sports activity in recent years and currently boasts teams in every major US sport besides baseball. However, this time, Brady's investment could be in his old stomping ground, the NFL. If true, it would be a major boon for the city's ailing NFL team.

Tom Brady only ever played six career games against the Raiders, going 5-1 against the Black and Silver. However, one of the games is the incredibly infamous "Tuck Rule Game". Regardless, Brady is a big fan of Las Vegas as a city. If the reports are true, Brady would buy a minority, limited partnership share in the Raiders from Davis. Davis has owned the Raiders since 2011, following the death of his father, Al Davis. Overall, the Davis family has owned the team since 1972.

If Brady does go through with the purchase, he will need the support of 24 NFL owners. This is standard practice for all new majority and minority team owners. However, it is unlikely anyone will object given how much Brady has done for the league. Furthermore, Fox has also reportedly given their blessing for Brady to pursue the deal. Brady is slated to begin a ten-year broadcasting deal with the network in 2024. It's not the first time Brady has been approached about minority ownership, with the Dolphins being punished for tampering over conversations with Brady in 2021 and 2022. What do you think about Brady potentially becoming an NFL owner? Let us know in the comments.
