Recently, Tom Brady has seen his name pop up in a few different headlines. There have been discussions about his future as a broadcaster, as a huge contract awaits him to become an announcer with Fox.
Earlier this week, some discussions occurred about Tom Brady potentially coming back to the NFL. Despite announcing his retirement earlier this offseason, some people aren’t convinced that the surefire Hall of Famer has taken his last snap under center.
Those talks popped up in part because Tom Brady revealed that he is hoping to become an owner. He has his sights set on the Las Vegas Raiders, who coincidentally, were one of the teams linked to him this offseason had he opted to continue his playing career.
With the recent update of Jimmy Garoppolo’s failed physical and potential voiding of his contract, the noise got even louder. With a few tweaks and adjustments, there was a route in which Tom Brady could have become the first owner-player in the NFL.
Alas, that isn’t something he is looking to achieve. In fact, he provided a definitive answer, again, as to what the future holds for him. He will not be taking the field with the Raiders, or anyone, as he is retired.
“I’m certain I’m not playing again, so I’ve tried to make that clear and I hate to continue to profess that, cause I’ve already told people that lots of times,” Brady told Sports Illustrated.
Tom Brady’s dream is to be involved with the NFL for the rest of his life, which is what becoming an owner would allow him to do. He has joined the Raiders’ ownership group according to Mark Davis and the move is just awaiting approval from the league.
This isn’t his first venture into ownership in sports. Tom Brady bought a stake in the Las Vegas Aces of the WNBA in March, as he is cementing his ties to Sin City by becoming a part of the Raiders’ ownership as well.
