Tom Brady in talks to become limited partner with NFL franchise, per report
Tom Brady is once again retired from the NFL, but it looks like fully leaving the league behind is tough for the Hall of Fame-bound quarterback.
According to a Friday report from ESPN’s Seth Wickersham and Adam Schefter, Brady is in “deep discussions to become a limited partner of the Las Vegas Raiders.” Per that report, the discussions have been ongoing for weeks and could reach a resolution soon.
The report goes on to detail that the situation is “extremely sensitive” with “fluid negotiation.” Brady’s investment with the franchise if finalized is expected to be passive with the retired QB not having any operational control or authority over the club in business or football matters.
This is not the first time Brady has been connected to potentially becoming a part owner of an NFL franchise. He most notably was reported to have discussions about becoming a limited partner with the Miami Dolphins.
Brady would have presumably played for the Dolphins had a deal taken place but he is not expected to try to play for the Raiders per the report. At the end of the day, it is likely Brady’s playing days are fully behind him, but it would be interesting to see if he becomes a part owner in one of the prominent franchises of the league moving forward.
