Fox NFL announcer Tom Brady will not be in conflict calling Las Vegas Raiders games this fall despite his pending ownership stake in the franchise, NFL Media's Hans Schroeder told reporters on Thursday.

There won't be any restrictions on Brady calling games involving the Raiders or anyone else for Fox. Brady's interest in buying a minority stake in the Raiders from Mark Davis was first reported last year, but the deal has yet to be finalized.

In fact, the deal is in limbo according to a report from Ben Volin of The Boston Globe.

This fall will be Brady's first season in the booth as an announcer for Fox after he retired from football following Tampa Bay's 2022 exit from the NFL playoffs. After taking a year off away from the sport, he will be back involved in a significant capacity, as he joins Kevin Burkhardt on Fox's No. 1 announcing team.

Brady's first game will be the Dallas Cowboys vs. Cleveland Browns in Week 1 on Sunday, Sept. 8.
