Tim Brown doesn’t need Tom Brady on the Raiders.
Las Vegas has been rumored as a vacation spot for Brady, a free agent this offseason, due to the connection between the quarterback and head coach Josh McDaniels, who was Brady’s longtime offensive coordinator in New England. Showing on “Maggie & Perloff” on CBS Sports activities Radio, the previous receiver, who spent the majority of his NFL profession within the silver and black, sought to veto that concept.
“I don’t assume Tom Brady must be within the plans in any respect,” Brown stated. “However, due to that relationship, I feel that’s a risk.
Requested why Brady shouldn’t be within the crew’s plans, Brown responded, “Effectively, I feel he’s beginning to present that he’s 45-46 years outdated. His lack of ability to maneuver — once you have a look at the quarterbacks within the league at present you might have only a few who’re pocket quarterbacks. Joe Burrow might be the closest factor you get, however God is aware of when it’s time to run, he can get out of the pocket and make it occur.
“Tom Brady isn’t gonna try this. I simply don’t imagine on this league, and yeah, Tom has gained all these Tremendous Bowls, however I simply assume the league is shifting to some extent the place you need to have a quarterback that’s in a position to transfer round and get some issues carried out together with his toes each as soon as in awhile.”
Brown performed extensive receiver for the Raiders from 1988 by 2003, catching over 1,000 balls for almost 15,000 yards and making the Professional Bowl 9 occasions. He was inducted into the Professional Soccer Corridor of Fame in 2015.
Brady was noncommittal earlier this week when requested about his future plans.
“Jim, if I knew what I used to be going to f–king do, I’d have already f–king carried out it,” Brady advised Jim Grey on their SiriusXM present on Monday night time. “I’m taking it a day at a time.”
