OFFICIAL: Raiders set to partner with…

NFL insider Albert Breer explained in a Sports Illustrated article published Friday afternoon how former New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s desire to become a limited partner with the Las Vegas Raiders led the former Raiders to hire the rookie head coach of the Tennessee Titans, Mike Vrabel. I explained to him what happened. .

Principal this winter.”Brady and Vrabel were very close as teammates for eight years and have maintained their relationship ever since,” Breer said. “Brady’s respect for Vrabel could put him at the top of any (Raiders owner Mark Davis) list, and the Raiders could certainly give Vrabel a roster spot at 8-9 despite all the turmoil this season …

“Vrabel won three Super Bowl rings with the Patriots from 2001 to 2008 and was repeatedly mentioned as a possible replacement for Bill Belichick before Belichick and team owner Robert Kraft announced Thursday that they had mutually agreed to break up. After the Patriots officially promoted Jerrod Mayo to head coach on Friday, Breer wrote that he’s “not sure (Vrabel) will be New England’s first choice” for the following reasons. This links Vrabel to another profession.

However, what is in Foxborough may be stronger than his work.ā€¯Raiders players such as All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams and wide receiver Maxx Crosby have publicly campaigned for Davis to replace interim head coach Antonio Pierce as the team’s permanent head coach.

Davis doesn’t seem in a hurry to call, and Pierce seems to be doing the interview elsewhere. Brear suggested that Brady listen to Davis on football-related matters, such as hiring a coach, as the owner ultimately approves TB12’s purchase of a minority stake in the Raiders.

Vrabel went 54-45 in six regular seasons with the Titans and earned Associated Press Coach of the Year honors for the 2021 season. “The Brady-Vrabel connection is definitely worth noting,” Breer concluded.
