Tom Brady buys stake in Las Vegas Raiders, says team owner
HENDERSON, Nev.- Recently retired and seven-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady will become minority owners of the Las Vegas Raiders pending NFL approval, majority owner Mark Davis told ESPN on Monday.
“We’re excited to have Tom join the Raiders and it’s exciting because he will become only the third player in National Football League history to become an owner,” Davis said.
George Halas and Jerry Richardson were the other two.
Brady and Davis also have a business relationship with the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces. Davis is the majority owner and Brady has a stake in the club.
At least 24 NFL owners must approve Brady’s deal with the Raiders.
He also has a 10-year, $375 million broadcast deal with Fox Sports beginning in 2024.
Brady won six Super Bowls with the New England Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. En route to his first title in 2002, Brady defeated the Raiders in an AFC playoff game after falling over a fumble in the famous “Tuck Rule” game.
