But quarterback Derek Carr isn't making that connection.
"I mean, there was a lot of quarterbacks at that fight," Carr said, according to Paul Gutierrez of ESPN. "And there was a lot of football players at that fight that are free agents. And it's like, every time, with my job, it's always a story. No matter what.
"And knowing some people that were around, I even know what the conversation was (between Davis and Brady), and it's like, 'C'mon, man, when's it going to end?'"
Instead, Carr expressed his excitement to start a fresh campaign with the Raiders entering a brand new $2-billion stadium, saying he looks "forward to taking the first snap in that stadium, and I look forward to taking every snap from here on out - until I'm done."
The Raiders officially announced their relocation to Las Vegas on Wednesday.
The AFC West club finished its last season in Oakland with a 7-9 record, missing the playoffs for the third consecutive year.
