The NFL Quarterback Carousel is set to hit the ground running again in just a few weeks, and the only seven-time Super Bowl winner in league history is once again one of the top prizes.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady will become a free agent after the season. And just a week after Derek put Kerr on the bench, the Las Vegas Raiders have made Brady their top target this offseason, reports the Las Vegas Review-Journal.
Colin Cowherd initially wondered if the Raiders would be the best team for Brady.
“Even if Tom Brady went there, it wouldn’t be a perfect fit,” Cowherd said on Thursday’s “The Heard.” prefers comfort, but he has never proven to be a successful head coach.Josh McDaniels’ game management has had many critics.They have lost many big leads this year. rice field.
“The defense — the secondary was a mess. Their first pick should be a corner. Their second pick should be a safety. The secondary was a mess…”
Raiders’ top priority is reportedly signing Tom Brady
Cowherd, however, believed that Raiders could actually be the best match for Brady, admitting he excelled in the right areas when he investigated a bit more.
“The Raiders are the opposite of the Colts,” Cowherd said. “They have holes, but they check the right boxes. Left tackle Colton Miller, he’s a good starter. They have star receiver (Davante Adams) and star edge rusher (Max Crosby). Brady is going to be a star quarterback and they have the offensive head coach in 2022.
Because the Raiders have the right people in the right places, Cowherd believes signing Brady has a slight advantage over teams that have tried and tampered with him in the past.
“I think the Raiders,” Cowherd said of who he thinks Brady’s next team will be. “They play indoors too. It’s fun. Tom has a lot of wealth and Nevada doesn’t have state taxes. [Patrick] Mahomes, [Justin] The Herbert thing is a little more difficult. Miami or Raiders. Based on the Las Vegas Review-Journal article, I would say 51% of him leans toward Raiders. It looks like the Raiders are going after Brady.”
Colin and Jason McIntyre predict where Tom Brady and Derek Carr will play in 2023
Cowherd not only believes the Raiders hold Brady’s pole position, but believes the Raiders are well positioned overall. Kerr said he will receive a $40 million guarantee for the 2023 season on February 15, just three days after the Super Bowl. However, as an article in the Las Vegas Review-Journal points out, the Raiders and Kerr may agree to some kind of renegotiation that would allow Kerr to be more easily traded and landed in preferred destinations.
If the Raiders can find a way to trade Carr without giving him a big guarantee, Cowherd believes the return he gets will serve their purpose of getting more Brady.
“I also believe the Raiders will pick Derek Carr in the second or third round,” Cowherd said. “Are you going to tell me Derek Carr isn’t worthy of a second or third round pick to stabilize the New York Jets situation? Derek Carr isn’t going to be a bust.
“Remember, teams that want Derek Carr — Indy, Jets, maybe Houston — bad teams, or teams that don’t make the playoffs, their season ended on Tuesday. You have five weeks. I have.It’s doable.I think it will happen.I think bad teams have plenty of time.
