Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis has revealed he’s “come to an agreement” with legendary retired quarterback and future Hall of Famer, Tom Brady, to acquire a minority stake in the franchise pending NFL approval.

“We’re excited for Tom to join the Raiders, and it’s exciting because he will be just the third player in the history of the National Football League to become an owner,” Mark Davis told ESPN.

The only other two players-turned-owners are George Halas and Jerry Richardson.

Earlier this months, there were rumours that Brady, who won seven Super Bowls across a historic 23-season stint, was jeopardising his blockbuster 10-year / US$375 million (AU$564 million) broadcaster contract with Fox Sports by pursuing team ownership.

But that has since been debunked with TB12 set to make himself home in front of cameras starting from 2024.

According to ESPN, Tom Brady had reportedly sought out a minority ownership stake in the Miami Dolphins around 2021-2022 prior to securing a slice of the Raiders.

That was until a six-month NFL investigation determined that Dolphins owner Stephen Ross and vice chairman Bruce Beal – the latter of whom is a known friend of Brady’s – violated the league’s anti-tampering policy in conversation with modern football’s GOAT.

As a result, the Dolphins were stripped of their first-round draft pick in last month’s draft.

Should Tom Brady join the Las Vegas Raiders’ ownership group without a hitch, it’ll mark the third sports franchise he owns after the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces as well as a pickleball expansion team in the MLP.
