Jon Gruden bristles at Raiders being linked to Tom Brady in free agency

  Jon Gruden bristles at Raiders being linked to Tom Brady in free agency The Raiders are a reported player in the Tom Brady sweepstakes, but don't tell that to head coach Jon Gruden.If you ask those who follow the NFL, they'll tell you the Las Vegas Raiders are a possible destination for Tom Brady in free agency.

Devin McCourty and Tom Brady have played together since 2010. The New England Patriots are ushering in a new era in the franchise's history now that Tom Brady has taken his talents Instead, he re -upped for two more years at a total of million. As for that new challenge, McCourty states that

Thousands of Patriots fans line the streets of Boston to see Tom Brady and the team in the duck boats for the Super Bowl LI victory parade.

Even in the best of times, the New England Patriots annoyed everyone by insisting nobody believed in them.

Get ready for that to go into overdrive.

There finally is a reason to not believe in the Patriots. Quarterback Tom Brady is gone. To this point, the Patriots haven’t made any big move at quarterback. They have signed Brian Hoyer. Jarrett Stidham has been floated as a possible Brady replacement. Stidham has four NFL attempts, one was intercepted and he was benched in garbage time as a result.

Franchise icon Tom Brady has since departed for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and now the Patriots are looking at the prospect of replacing a legend. Jarrett Stidham, Cody Kessler and Brian Hoyer are the current in-house candidates to usher in the post - Brady era , and it would appear like Stidham has

Tom Brady is turning 40 and the end of his career is on the horizon, so the Patriots aren’t playing around. No matter how much Brady reminds Patriots safety Devin McCourty of Benjamin Button, the end Now Cooks goes to an offense that already has Julian Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, Danny

So there is a lot of skepticism about the Patriots, particularly with the Buffalo Bills emerging as a threat in the AFC East. The Patriots are listening.

Devin McCourty: ‘People are going to say ... the dynasty is over’

The Patriots have perfected the mindset that the NFL world believes they’re not good. That’s ridiculous and it just makes everyone angry to hear them act like they’re anyone’s underdog.

But prepare for a lot of it this year. Patriots safety Devin McCourty wrote a long story in The Players’ Tribune about re-signing with the Patriots and the team’s personnel losses, including Brady:

“People are going to say that because Tom’s gone, the dynasty is over. They’re already burying us, far as I can tell. And that’s fine. Let ’em. We’ve never listened to the noise, and we’re not about to start now. But the task is definitely taller this coming year than it has been in years past. There’s more work to do. And it’s not gonna be so easy this time around.”

Tom Brady announces he won't re-sign with New England Patriots in historic NFL move

  Tom Brady announces he won't re-sign with New England Patriots in historic NFL move Tom Brady's run with the New England Patriots is officially over. The six-time champion and three-time MVP announced he won't re-sign with the team.

Devin McCourty , a defensive back for the Patriots , who beat the Los Angeles Rams 13-3 at Super Bowl LIII in Atlanta on Sunday, told reporters on Monday that he would not “Nah,” Harmon told TMZ after helping the Patriots claim their sixth Super Bowl title. “ They don’t want me in the White House.”

Anyway, I think the strangest post - Brady realization I’ve had is that we are not looking at a Super Bowl-caliber I know we are still “in” the process of untethering from Brady and it ’s going to take a few days before They ’ll keep Belichick’s most trusted lieutenants — Devin McCourty and Matt Slater

This is far from the last time you’ll hear something like that. You will tire of this very quickly.

Patriots will still be pretty good

The most ridiculous take this month on social media — thankfully it is limited to a few — is that the Patriots should tank for Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, the probable first pick of the 2021 draft. That is flat out wrong in a few ways, the most important being that the Patriots are nowhere near the worst team in football. They’d probably be tanking for like the 10th pick, at worst.

The Patriots went 12-4 last season with one of the best defenses in football. They have the greatest coach in NFL history, Bill Belichick. They’d have to play 10-on-11 without a quarterback to finish with the NFL’s worst record.

But that doesn’t mean they’re not vulnerable for the first time in decades. It’s not just Brady who left. The Patriots lost plenty of talent this offseason (check out our free agency grades). The offense was already in decline before it lost Brady and didn’t have an obvious replacement in place.

The Patriots actually look beatable for the first time in a long time. Just watch what you say about them, because they’ll use every word as motivation this offseason. And let us know all about it.
