Recently retired NFL quarterback Tom Brady, who insists that this retirement will be for good, has already ventured into the world of women's professional sports by becoming a minority owner in the WNBA's Las Vegas Aces. And now, he's continuing that trend by agreeing to become a minority owner of the Las Vegas Raiders! 

And don't look now, but there are rumors circulating that Brady could eventually be suiting up under center for the Raiders come this fall, especially after the fact that newly acquired quarterback Jimmy Garappolo failed his recent physical owing to an injury that's been lingering since last season. 

In fact, Brady leads recent oddsmakers as the odds-on favorite to start Week 1 for the Raiders. But what does he himself have to say about it?

When asked during an interview with Sports Illustrated, "What's your message to those fans, the media, whoever it is, that's constantly concocting a way for you to come back?

"I'm certain I'm not playing again," Brady said. "I've tried to make that clear. I hate to continue to profess that because I've already told people that lots of times. I'm looking forward to my broadcasting job at FOX next year. I'm looking forward to the opportunity I have with the Raiders. We're in the process of that, along with the other different things that I'm a part of professionally. And in my personal life, just spending as much time with my kids as I can. And seeing them grow up, and support the different things that they have going on. That's a very important job." 

Well, there you have it.
