Monday on 2 Pros and a Cup of Joe, Jonas Knox, Brady Quinn and LaVar Arrington react to Dana White revealing what might have been in Las Vegas, when he almost brokered a deal for Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski to join the Raiders up until Jon Gruden 'blew the deal up.'

LaVar Arrington: "How amazing would that have been for ticket sales and just the amount of attention on that team?"
Brady Quinn: "At the end, Jon Gruden did pick Derek Carr. If you're gonna pick Carr over the greatest quarterback to ever do it, that's like picking [him] over Jordan. That's a pretty big statement right there."
Jonas Knox: "I think Gruden wanted to be the star. I think he wanted to be the focal point of the Raiders and Brady being there, Gronk being there, all of a sudden that's gone. They're the stars."
