“We want you to come to the Raiders. I’ve been pitching you now for a month. Come on brother, get to Vegas,”

“I don’t know what the future holds right now. I’m just trying to be patient through the process, my first time going through it.

“In the meantime, I’m going to spend a lot of time with my family. We have a little vacation planned which I’m looking forward to.”

Well, they might not be of the same personality, but they do share a good bond. What did you make of White’s comments on Brady?
