The surprising news of Jimmy Garoppolo’s uncertain future as the Raiders’ starting quarterback has been the talk of the town in the NFL recently.
The Raiders might have to start scouring the field for new quarterback options due to Garoppolo’s injured left foot, which was initially flagged during his physical examination back in March when he joined the team. An addendum to his contract allows the Raiders to cut him at no cost if he can’t pass a physical.
Is Tom Brady Going To Play for the Raiders?
Even more intriguing is the potential return of seven-time Super Bowl winner Tom Brady, whose name has been buzzing around Sin City. Brady, who is in the process of buying a piece of the Raiders, has expressed his interest in playing for the team in the past.
However, Brady’s potential return to the NFL is not without complications.
In order to play, he’d need unanimous approval from the other NFL owners. Furthermore, if he becomes an owner, there might be a stipulation in Brady’s purchase forbidding him from playing as long as he owns a stake in the team.
Brady, who announced his second retirement in February after 23 seasons, hasn’t commented on the rumors of his possible return.
