The Las Vegas Raiders are hot for quarterback Tom Brady. CBS reporter Jonathan Jones reports that the Raiders are keen to sign the 45-year-old NFL superstar for the new season if Brady were to add another year.
Tom Brady will be back on the market as a contractless player after this season. If the quarterback icon doesn’t retire, there will be plenty of suitors for Brady. According to a report, an AFC team is making a special effort for the superstar’s services.
CBS Sports’ Jonathan Jones reports that the Las Vegas Raiders plan to be “very aggressive” in signing Brady after this season. The background is that Derek Carr wants to leave the Raiders, be it through a trade or the cancellation of his contract.

Jones reports that the maximum offer Las Vegas can get for a trade on Carr is a two-round pick.
According to Jones, the “prevailing opinion” is that Brady will continue playing in 2023 after retiring from retirement last year, rather than quitting.
In addition to Las Vegas, the San Francisco 49ers and Tennessee Titans are also in the running for Brady, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
The Raiders are coached by Josh McDaniels, who was Brady’s longtime offensive coordinator with the New England Patriots.
Additionally, general manager Dave Ziegler spent many years with Brady with the Patriots. Tennessee is coached by Brady’s former Patriots teammate, Mike Vrabel.
During the off-season, the Raiders have to deal with quarterback and running back positions. Running back Josh Jacobs is also likely to become a free agent, having recently led the NFL at rushing yards. Wide receiver Davante Adams remains under contract until 2026.
