Tim Brown doesn’t want Tom Brady on the Raiders.
Las Vegas is rumored to be a destination for Brady, a free agent this offseason, due to the quarterback’s relationship with head coach Josh McDaniels, who was Brady’s longtime offensive coordinator in Nova Scotia. England. Appearing on “Maggie & Perloff” on CBS Sports Radio, the former catcher, who spent most of his NFL career in silver and black, sought to veto the idea.
“I don’t think Tom Brady should be in the plans at all,” Brown said. “But, because of this relationship, I think it’s a possibility.
When asked why Brady shouldn’t be in the team’s plans, Brown replied, “Well, I think he’s starting to show he’s 45-46. His inability to move – when you look at league quarterbacks today, you have very few pocket quarterbacks. Joe Burrow is probably the closest thing you get, but God knows when it’s time to run, he can get out of the pocket and get there.
“Tom Brady will never do that. I just don’t believe in this league, and yes, Tom has won all those Super Bowls, but I just think the league is getting to a point where you have to have a capable quarterback to move around and do things with his feet from time to time.
Brown played wide receiver for the Raiders from 1988 to 2003, catching more than 1,000 balls for nearly 15,000 yards and making the Pro Bowl nine times. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2015.
Brady was coy earlier this week when asked about his future plans.
“Jim, if I knew what I was going to do, I would have done it by now,” Brady told Jim Gray on their SiriusXM show Monday night. “I take it one day at a time.”
