This could be my greatest victory lap of all time for all of you guys who were in the comments about Tom Brady joining the Raiders. Saying stuff like “He’s going to be an owner” and “Clickbait”. Well, guess what, you better start getting your apologies ready.
Monday Night Football commentator, Troy Aikman recently shared his thoughts with TMZ Sports on the possibility of Tom Brady suiting up for the Las Vegas Raiders in 2023. Aikman believes that given Brady’s dedication to fitness and his strong relationship with head coach Josh McDaniels, it’s not out of the realm of possibility.
Additionally, Brady’s potential ownership stake in the team could further facilitate such a move. Aikman clarified that he does not want to speak on behalf of Brady, but he wouldn’t rule anything out. However, Aikman also noted that he strongly believes Brady is done playing football, although he acknowledged that you never know for sure.
The main reason this is back in the news is that it was reported that Jimmy Garopollo failed his physical when he first signed with the Raiders because of his foot injury that required surgery. There is a clause in the contract that if he isn’t healthy by training camp, the Raiders can cut him for nothing.
Tom Brady comes into the picture because he just purchased a minority stake in the Raiders. I could totally imagine Tom being the Jackie Moon of the NFL, playing while also being the owner of a franchise. While it all is nothing more than speculation, it would be hilarious if Tom Brady cucked Jimmy G one last time.
