Multiple reports have surfaced that Tom Brady was nearly a member of the Las Vegas Raiders in 2020. That didn’t happen, but Brady has recently set himself up to be a part of the team this offseason. Via ownership.
According to Albert Breer with NBC Sports, Brady has agreed to purchase a minority share of the Raiders. The NFL needs to approve the deal before it can become official.
The sale of a minority share of the @Raiders to ex-Patriots and Bucs QB @TomBrady has been agreed to and submitted to the NFL for approval. Won’t be done at the spring meeting but ball is rolling on it.
(Brady is already in business w/Vegas owner Mark Davis, with the WNBA Aces.)

Would Tom Brady come back to throw to Davante Adams?
Brady was listed as a possible quarterback option for the Raiders this offseason. However, Brady decided to retire. The Raiders traded Derek Carr this offseason and signed Jimmy Garopollo. Star wide receiver Davante Adams indicated in a report published last week that he seemed frustrated by the quarterback situation. That started rumors flooding that the Raiders could trade Adams.
It’ll be interesting to see what Brady does as an owner this season. If he does get the hunch to come back and play football, it would likely be for the Raiders. Brady would be surrounded by members he knew when he was with the New England Patriots. Head coach Josh McDaniels was his offensive coordinator for three Super Bowl wins, so the territory would be familiar.
Brady’s return to the Raiders would be a welcome sight for Adams. One would assume he’ll be in Brady’s ears to have the seven-time Super Bowl champion under center for the Raiders this year. That would kill any chance of seeing Adams back in Green Bay anytime soon.
