On Tuesday, the Raiders opted not to pick up the option on coach Tom Cable’s contract. On Tuesday night, Lechler unloaded on the organization for dumping Cable.
On Wednesday, the Raiders signed punter Glenn Pakulak. The team announced the move on its website.
We doubt that it’s a coincidence.
Lechler, a Raiders since 2000, is signed through 2012. Pakulak spent eight games with the Saints in 2008, and two with the Redskins in 2009.
