Tom Brady is set to hit the free agency market for the first time in his career. This move has teams positioning themselves to try to snag the quarterback if he decides to leave Foxborough. One of these franchises appears to be the Las Vegas Raiders.
Longtime beat writer and father of superstar wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, Larry Fitzgerald Sr., reported that the Raiders are prepared to offer Brady a 2-year $60 million contract.
If this offer comes to fruition, it will be on track with what the Patriots say they are prepared to offer Brady to stay in New England. Per sources, Robert Kraft and the front office want to combat Brady's eagerness to hit the free agency pool by offering him a contract extension that will be worth close to $30 million a year.
Rumors surrounding the Raiders and Brady have been bubbling since their season ended. The two parties added fuel to the fire when Brady was seen hanging out with Raiders owner, Mark Davis, at UFC 246 in Las Vegas. Along with the Raiders, insiders have claimed that Brady is leaning towards returning to California and playing for the Los Angeles Chargers. While the Chargers haven't sent out a hypothetical offer, they have cut ties with quarterback Phillip Rivers, insinuating that the position is open if Brady wants to join the roster.
