Tom Brady set to reunite with former OC Josh McDaniels, but not in New England
The first official offseason of Tom Brady's retirement moves on with the seven-time Super Bowl champion continuing to make headlines with his new business ventures.
Last week, it was reported that Brady was interested in buying a minority share of the Las Vegas Raiders, a team he had been rumored to sign with before heading to the Buccaneers, making this whole ordeal even more interesting.
As of Monday afternoon, it appears his dream has become a reality, as NFL insider Albert Breer announced the sale has been agreed to and submitted for approval from the league. That is said to occur at the owner's spring meeting this week.
This is just another chapter of Brady's moves since retiring, as he also acquired a stake in another Las Vegas team earlier this year. Because of his close relationship with Raiders owner Mark Davis, the former quarterback also has ownership of the Las Vegas Aces, a WNBA team.
However, this isn't Brady's first attempt to partially own an NFL team.
When he announced his first retirement, it was reported that he expressed interest in purchasing a stake in the Miami Dolphins, another team he had been connected to after departing the Patriots in 2020.
This, of course, led to the tampering scandal, as the Dolphins were proven to have improperly communicated with Brady when he was still under contract with the Patriots and was just one of the reasons the whole deal blew up.
But now that he appears to be on the true retirement path, Brady has added to his business ventures with the Raiders, reuniting with former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
Could that have been a motivating factor in making the deal?
How much he will be purchasing is yet to be revealed, but since the deal will likely be approved later this week, more details will probably come.
