NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell provided an update on Tom Brady’s pursuit of a minority stake in the Las Vegas Raiders on Wednesday.

Speaking from the spring meetings in Nashville, Goodell indicated that “progress is being made.” However, he also noted that some issues remain.

This comes a couple days after reports indicated that some teams are concerned over Brady owning part of the Raiders as he starts his career in the broadcast booth for Fox this upcoming season. Said concerns are justifiable given that Brady could have a conflict of interest.

It was last year that Brady agreed to buy a small portion of the Raiders from owner Mark Davis. At that point, some around the NFL were concerned that the seven-time Super Bowl champion would unretire. It’s against league rules for players to have ownership stake in a team while they are active.

Brady and Davis have a relationship with one another. That includes the former star quarterback buying a minority stake in the WNBA’s Las Vegas Aces last year.

Brady is looking to get into the business side of sports after retiring from the NFL following the 2022 season. Whether that takes hold with the Raiders remains to be seen.
