Las Vegas Raiders: Signing Tom Brady Puts the Raiders on a New Level
After going through so many big changes in the last two offseasons, it’s time for the Las Vegas Raiders to take the next step in building a playoff-caliber team. Part of that growth has to involve soon-to-be free agent Tom Brady.
The six-time Super Bowl champion would bring a lot to a young Raiders squad, that is fighting for a chance to be relevant again.
Brady would give head coach Jon Gruden a veteran voice who commands respect in the huddle, instead of Derek Carr, who hasn’t made much noise as a starter in the NFL.
The 42-year old brings plenty of playoff experience to a franchise that is loaded with young that needs to grow and reach new heights.
Let’s be realistic but positive
With the Raiders moving to Las Vegas, they’ll need someone to help bring people to the stadium every home game and Tom Terrific could be that guy.
I’m not expecting Brady to cure all of the Raiders’ ills, but he can adjust the focus in the room and add fuel to the locker room.
Brady is being doubted by a ton of football lovers and if he can lift the Raiders in some form, that only helps his legacy.
It only makes sense to try and fix the quarterback position.
I would recommend getting Brady and adding pieces along the o-line.
If possible, the Raiders should pursue a young QB in this year’s draft.
The Raiders can make the playoffs with the roster they have, but replacing Carr with Brady would ascend Las Vegas to a new level and include hype that the silver and black haven’t been able to get in years.
Why is this good for Tom?
Brady should go to Las Vegas for a few reasons.
The Raiders have been able to draft relatively well with Gruden as the head coach and from Clelin Ferrell to Johnathan Abram to Jacobs it looks as though Gruden can’t go wrong, which should be a plus for Brady if he wants to keep playing for a while.
The AFC West has the reigning Super Bowl champs in Kansas City, but Denver and the L.A. Chargers aren’t scary.
I’m not expecting Brady to win more Super Bowls, but he needs a change of scenery and Las Vegas could use a star to kickstart a new era of Raiders football.
After all, the Raiders can’t have the Chiefs making all of the noise in the AFC West.
