BetOnline has listed Brady as the favorite to be the Raiders starting quarterback if Jimmy Garoppolo is unable to line up under center. Garoppolo did not pass his physical with the Raiders and had surgery on his left foot. There are no guarantees that he will be ready to participate at full strength in training camp.

Since the NFL waits for no one, the Raiders have to be at least thinking about who will line up at quarterback for the 2023 season. BetOnline has its opinion, and that gambling site seems to believe that the retired Brady has the best chance of playing QB for the Silver and Black.

Brady has retired each of the past 2 years. He quickly rescinded his retirement decision after the 2021 season and returned to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. However, when the 2022 season concluded, he made a similar retirement announcement. Brady has not said anything publicly to indicate he will play in 2023.

BetOnline lists Tom Brady as the favorite to start at quarterback if Garoppolo is out of the picture at odds of 2-1. Others whom the site lists include Brian Hoyer at 5-2, Matt Ryan at 3-1 and Nick Foles at 6-1. The site also lists Aidan O'Connell, Carson Wentz and Andy Dalton as potential Las Vegas quarterbacks.

However, the plan is complicated by Brady's plan to become a partial owner of the Raiders. There are questions if other owners would allow Brady to resume playing if he became an owner.

Garoppolo agreed to  a 3-year, $67 million contract with the Raiders, and $34 million is guaranteed.
