Tom Brady, the legendary quarterback who has left an indelible mark on the NFL, is not ready to step away from the game just yet. While he may have retired from his on-field duties, he has found a new way to satisfy his competitive drive. Brady has emerged as a prominent figure in the business side of the league, making headlines with his latest venture – acquiring a minority ownership stake in the Las Vegas Raiders, the team owned by Mark Davis.
Reports indicate that a sale of a minority share to Brady has been agreed upon and has been submitted for approval to the league office. Although the transaction won’t be finalized during the NFL spring meeting, the wheels are already in motion, as confirmed by Sports Illustrated NFL reporter Albert Breer on Twitter.
This move comes on the heels of Brady’s previous foray into team ownership. In March, the former NFL MVP became a minority owner of the Las Vegas Aces, the WNBA champions, also under the ownership of Mark Davis, according to the Associated Press.
While Brady’s playing career officially ended in February, following a remarkable 23-year journey that included a brief retirement and a final season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he continues to make significant contributions to the sport. In fact, last year, FOX Sports announced a groundbreaking 10-year, $375 million deal with Brady, appointing him as a lead analyst for their football broadcasts. Once he hangs up his cleats, Brady will transition seamlessly into the world of sports commentary, calling the premier game of the NFL weekend alongside Kevin Burkhardt.
Brady’s impact extends beyond the field and the broadcast booth. He has ventured into entrepreneurship with his fitness and nutrition business, aptly named TB12, which he co-founded with his trusted trainer, Alex Guerrero. This enterprise draws inspiration from Brady’s own daily habits as an elite athlete. Additionally, Brady actively runs the TB12 Foundation, a charitable arm of his fitness business that focuses on providing innovative performance and wellness resources to at-risk athletes who may not have access to such programs.
But Brady’s involvement in the NFL doesn’t stop there. The accomplished quarterback also has a passion for the big screen, having served as the executive producer for the film “80 For Brady.” Inspired by a true story, the movie follows the journey of four best friends who embark on a trip to witness Brady’s remarkable performance in Super Bowl LI back in 2017.
As Brady adds another milestone to his illustrious career, his impact on the game cannot be overstated. He remains the NFL’s all-time leader in passing yards, boasting an impressive 89,214 yards, and holds the record for the most career touchdowns with 649. With more than five Super Bowl victories under his belt, Brady stands as the only player in history to achieve such a remarkable feat. He has been named the game’s Most Valuable Player five times, cementing his status as an icon in the world of football.
As the gridiron legend expands his influence beyond the playing field, it is evident that Tom Brady’s imprint on the NFL will continue to grow, leaving an enduring legacy both on and off the turf.
