The Las Vegas Raiders are struggling on the field. However, the head coach's old quarterback as an offensive coordinator has been working out a deal with the Raiders.
Tom Brady and Mark Davis are collaborating on him becoming a minority owner of the Raiders franchise. It has been in the works since last season but recently ran into a hurdle slowing progress.
A second person with knowledge of the deliberations said approval of the deal is hung up over several issues, including the discounted price. Those two people and a third person familiar with the process said that, barring a last-minute change, NFL team owners are not expected to ratify Brady’s deal to become a Raiders part-owner at their meeting scheduled for Oct. 17-18 in New York.
As reported by the Washington Post, Davis is selling about 5-10% of the football team to Brady. Just this week, he finished his deal to become the Las Vegas Aces WBNA franchise owner with Davis.
