Tom Brady’s insistent he’s done playing football, but the NFL may be opening the door for him for a return with the Las Vegas Raiders.
An NFL spokesperson told TMZ Sports that the retired quarterback could play with the Raiders once his ownership stake is approved—provided a separate vote allowing him to hold both roles as an owner and player passes. Both votes would need a three-fourths majority to pass.
Brady announced his second retirement in February—the exact anniversary of his first NFL exit. The future Hall of Famer would walk back his retirement a month later, returning to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 23rd and final season.
While it’s largely expected this retirement will stick, Brady refused to rule out playing again in April and joined the Raiders ownership group earlier this month. His minority share requires approval, but that is not expected to receive much pushback.
