Is Tom Brady a match with the Las Vegas Raiders?

The NFL quarterback carousel is about to rage on once more in only a matter of weeks, and the one seven-time Tremendous Bowl winner in league historical past will as soon as once more be one of many high prizes.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Tom Brady is about to change into a free agent at season’s finish. And only a week after they benched Derek Carr, the Las Vegas Raiders are making Brady their high goal this offseason, the Las Vegas Overview-Journal reported.

Colin Cowherd initially questioned whether or not the Raiders could be the very best crew for Brady.

“It is not a perfect fit if Tom Brady went there,” Cowherd stated on Thursday’s “The Herd.” “Josh McDaniels, he’s comfortable with him, and Brady likes comfort, but he’s never proven to be a successful head coach. There are a lot of critics of Josh McDaniels’ game management. They lost a lot of big leads this year. 

“The protection — the secondary’s been a large number. Their first decide must be a nook. Their second decide must be a security. The secondary’s been a large number. The offensive line is okay, not nice, nevertheless it’s high 12, 13 within the league. “

Raiders top priority is reportedly signing Tom Brady

However, Cowherd did admit that the Raiders are good in the right areas when he investigated a bit further, believing that they might indeed be the best fit for Brady.

“The Raiders are the other of the Colts,” Cowherd said. “They’ve holes, however they test the best bins. Left deal with Kolton Miller, he is a very good starter. They’ve a star receiver (Davante Adams) and a star edge rusher (Maxx Crosby). Brady could be the star quarterback. They’ve an offensive head coach in 2022. So, the bins are checked.”

With the Raiders having the right guys in the right spots, Cowherd thinks that they have a slight edge to sign Brady over the team that tampered in their attempts to sign him in the past.  

“I’d guess Raiders,” Cowherd said on who he thinks Brady’s next team will be. “In addition they play indoors. It is nice. Tom’s obtained a variety of wealth and there is no state tax in Nevada. I believe the [Patrick] Mahomes, [Justin] Herbert factor is a bit daunting. It is Miami or the Raiders. I’d say I am leaning 51 p.c Raiders primarily based on the Las Vegas Overview-Journal story. It sounds just like the Raiders are going to go after Brady exhausting.”

Not only does Cowherd believe that the Raiders hold the pole position for Brady, he thinks they’re in an advantageous spot all around. Carr is set to receive a $40 million guarantee for the 2023 season on Feb. 15, just three days after the Super Bowl. But as the Las Vegas Review-Journal story points out, the Raiders and Carr could agree to some type of renegotiation that would allow Carr to be traded easier and land in a preferred destination. 

If the Raiders are able to find a way to trade Carr without having to give him the big guarantee, Cowherd thinks the return they’ll get for him would help their cause to get Brady even more. 

“I additionally imagine that the Raiders will get a second- or third-round decide for Derek Carr,” Cowherd said. “Are you going to inform me that Derek Carr, to assist stabilize the New York Jets’ state of affairs, is not price a second- or a third-round decide? Second- or third-round picks, 30 p.c of them are busts. Derek Carr is not going to be a bust.

“Remember, the teams that would want Derek Carr — Indy, the Jets, perhaps Houston — the bad teams, or the teams that won’t make the playoffs, their season’s done Tuesday. You’ve got five weeks. … I think it’s doable. I think it’s going to happen. I think the bad teams have plenty of time.”
