Tom Brady is joining Mark Davis’ Las Vegas sports empire after all.

It’s just not how we previously envisioned it.

The Las Vegas Aces of the WNBA announced the recently retired superstar quarterback has invested as a partial owner of the team. It’s majority owner is Davis, who, of course, also owns the Las Vegas Raiders.

It was heavily speculated that the Raiders would seriously pursue Brady if decided to play this season. Instead, Brady, 45, has opted to move on with his life and becoming an owner in the WNBA is his first step.

Brady and Davis have been friendly and they have been seen together at MMA fights and at an Aces game last spring. Davis very much wanted Brady when he was a free agent in 2020 and now he, indeed, gets to work with him. Also, Brady and Aces’ star Kelsey Plum have struck up a friendship.

So, it may not be what was expected or wanted previously, but in some ways, Brady has joined the Raiders family.
