March 18 can’t come soon enough.

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have not agreed to a new contract for next season, meaning other teams are positioned to pursue the veteran quarterback in free agency when the new league year opens next month.

There was a report last week that the Las Vegas Raiders were set to offer Brady a two-year contract worth $60 million. Colin Cowherd explained Monday on FOX Sports 1 that he’s not buying that report, though.

“Tom Brady, I don’t believe, bought a big mansion in Las Vegas,” Cowherd said. “Prove it to me. Show me the mortgage title. I don’t buy it. Because I don’t think Tom Brady is going to go to a rebuilding franchise and play in a division with Patrick Mahomes twice a year and those weapons.”

Cowherd continued by doubling down that Brady would not work in the Jon Gruden-coached system.

“It doesn’t make roster sense,” Cowherd said. “And Jon Gruden, by the way, doesn’t run an offense — you watched him for years on quarterback camp — he doesn’t run the offense that Tom Brady does, OK? The New England playbook does not have a play called ‘Y2K Banana Split,’ OK? That’s what Jon Gruden has. That’s not what Brady runs. None of this makes sense.”

Cowherd makes some fair statements. Seeing Brady in silver and black sure would be weird.
