The UFC president claimed Saturday that former Raiders coach Jon Gruden called off a deal that would have seen both Brady and longtime tight end Rob Gronkowski join the silver and black.
White said he worked on getting Brady and Gronk to come to the Raiders. “It was almost a done deal, and at the last minute, Gruden blew the deal up and said he ‘didn’t want them,’” White said during the “UFC 278 with The Gronks” show.
White added that Brady was even looking at houses in the area before Gruden squashed the plan.
