On the Las Vegas Raiders podcast with Tony Renteria:
#1 Tony, Las Vegas Raiders owner Marc Davis said involving a past move to get quarterback Tom Brady and tight end Rob Gronkowski was something he had no knowledge about.
#2 UFC president Dana White tried to bargain the idea but then Raiders head coach Jon Gruden shut down the deal and said it was not happening. Davis said yesterday quote “I don’t know man” regarding any deal for Brady or Gronkowski.
#3 White said that Brady was ready to be quarterback in Las Vegas for the 2020 season but Gruden for no given reason didn’t want either Brady or Gronkowski coming to Vegas. White said that Brady and Gronkowski were ready to sign with the Raiders and maybe the dynamic of the Raiders would have changed.
#4 Brady was eager and ready to play for the former Bay Area team as Brady comes from San Mateo and was excited about the idea and Gronkowski was ready for it too. If you had to speculate do you think jealousy played a part that had Gruden keep them out?
#5 The Raiders host Brady and Gronkowski’s former team the New England Patriots this Friday night and there is talk that the Raiders are about to release running back Kenyan Drake, Drake has 545 yards and three touchdowns in scrimmage and scouting reports say at 28 years old he’s got a lot of football left in him. Drake has a duel skillset in the running and passing game wouldn’t they Raiders need someone with that kind of talent?
