Raiders will make push for quarterback Tom Brady if he hits free agency: report


There's a chance New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady could hit the free agent market. If that happens, the Las Vegas Raiders will be there waiting.

The Raiders are expected to make a push for the six-time Super Bowl champion if he does not re-sign with the Patriots and hits free agency, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Brady, 41, has spent his entire 19-year career as a starting QB with the Patriots. Under head coach Bill Belichick, he has helped the New England team to nine Super Bowl appearances - the first of which came his very first year as the starting QB in 2001.

Since entering the league in 2000, he's made 14 Pro Bowls and has been named Super Bowl MVP four times, among other achievements.

He is an icon in New England sports and Patriots ownership likely will not let him walk without making him an offer worth his while. The team is willing to make Brady a deal "in excess of" $30 million to keep him, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

The Raiders would like to put some money down on the revered No. 12, but they're also not the only ones in the running.

The Chargers have also been reported among teams vying for Brady should he hit free agency.
