Tom Brady may be the best of them all, and assuming they get past Derek Carr, the Las Vegas Raiders need a quarterback.
But a Raiders legend doesn’t want Brady anywhere near Las Vegas.
Tim Brown believes the Raiders should go a different path, despite understanding that it’s a «possibility» because of his age.
«I don’t think Tom Brady should be in the cards at all…» Brown said on CBS Sports Radio. «I think he’s starting to show that he’s between 45 and 46 years old.»

It’s no secret that Brady isn’t the most athletic person in the world, but Brown believes he’s now becoming a detriment compared to the league’s younger, more mobile quarterbacks.

«When you look at quarterbacks in the league today, there are very few that are pocket quarterbacks,» Brown continued. «Joe Burrow is probably as close as you get, but God knows when it’s time to run, he can come out of the pocket and make it happen.»
«Tom Brady will never do that. I just don’t believe in this league, and yes, Tom has won all these Super Bowls, but I think the league is moving to a point where you have to have a quarterback that can move and do some things with your feet from time to time».
Brady didn’t win seven Super Bowls by accident, but he certainly took a step back: His 25 touchdowns were his lowest since he joined Tampa Bay (he’s thrown 43 and 40 over the past two years). He didn’t make the Pro Bowl, and it’s the first time Brady has finished under .500 in his career.
