Dana White admits trying to sign Tom Brady with this NFL team

Ddespite the fact that many have long awaited news of Tom Bradyretired, others held out hope that the veteran quarterback would extend his stay in the NFL, including UFC President Dana White.

The controversial leader of the mixed martial arts society is also known for his huge fanaticism for the New England Patriots, but to the surprise of many, it wasn’t the team that strongly suggested Brady make it his new home.

White contacted the seven-time Super Bowl winner just after the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were eliminated from the playoffs by Los Angeles Rams in Divisional Round.

White sought to sign Brady with the Las Vegas Raiders

To be more specific, White was “pounding him (Brady) into coming to Vegas.” First, the UFC big name was texting Brady asking for information from the original source about his intentions going forward, but then he asked him again and again to try his luck with the Las Vegas Raiders.

“I was texting him and he was texting very encrypted,” White told TMZ Sports. “He made me think he wasn’t going to retire. So you know what I was doing? I was hammering him into coming to Vegas and playing for the Raiders.”

What did Brady tell White about playing for the Raiders?

In fact, Brady never answered White with a resounding and resounding “no”, even though shortly after these insistent invitations to move to Nevada, Brady announced last Tuesday his final decision: to retire and thus end 22 years of success in the NFL.

That doesn’t mean we won’t see Brady in UFC fights alongside White again, as the now ex-quarterback is a co-owner of the sports company, but it’s very likely that The GOAT will be focusing on his family and new projects, so it would be less usual to see him at ringside.
