The biggest story of the NFL offseason this time around is Tom Brady. Will the legendary quarterback retire? Will he run it back with Tampa Bay? Or will he go elsewhere?
A few destinations are the Las Vegas Raiders and a reunion with the New England Patriots as well, among others. However, the Raiders make a lot of sense, even more so with former Patriots OC Josh McDaniels as the head coach in Vegas and Derek Carr on his way out.
While it seems like an obvious fit, Raiders’ legendary wide receiver Tim Brown is not a fan of the move at all and made his thoughts clear while appearing on “Maggie & Perloff” on CBS Sports Radio”.

“I don’t think Tom Brady should be in the plans at all. But, because of that relationship, I think that’s a possibility.”
The Raiders benched Derek Carr for the final stretch of the season, signaling the end of his tenure with the franchise, and they are at the forefront of the QB market.
Brady, even at 45 years old, hasn’t decided on his future in the NFL, but he can clearly still produce and should have plenty of suitors if he decides to hit the free agency market.
Some reports have even stated that the Raiders believe Brady will sign with them, and the influence of McDaniels is a terrific connection, as well as having Davante Adams at wide receiver and Darren Waller at tight end (for now).
But Tim Brown isn’t a fan of it, and he brings up valid points. On the other hand, McDaniels and the front office might be pressured to bring in a big name or risk beginning a rebuild with a rookie quarterback.
