When was the last time the New England Patriots were in the market for a starting quarterback? The Patriots had Drew Bledsoe leading their offence from 1993 to 2000. Then Tom Brady came to the Gillette Stadium to kickstart a new era of dominance for the Patriots. Since then, however, the Patriots have been absent from the quarterback conversation right up until after the 2019 season. For the first time in 20 years, therefore, the Patriots face the prospect of going into an NFL season without future Hall of Famer Tom Brady on their roster.

The Las Vegas Raiders have been among the franchises closely linked with Tom Brady since the Patriots’ exit from the playoffs last season. The Raiders have a more than a decent offensive line, one that produced the sixth-lowest sack rate last year. In addition to a well-rounded offence that would support Tom Brady a tad better than the Patriots at the moment, Raiders coach Jon Gruden has also displayed an affinity for veteran quarterbacks. Add to this the fact that there is no state income tax in Las Vegas and a move for Tom Brady does not quite seem too fantastical for the Raiders.
