Another name emerges in possible Raiders restructuring

Mark Davis AP

Last week, there was a report that NFL executive V.P. of football operations Ray Anderson was under consideration for a senior front office role with the Raiders.

Per the report by Chris Mortensen of ESPN, Raiders owner Mark Davis is contemplating a restructuring of the organization this offseason. On Sunday morning, Mortensen’s colleague Adam Schefter reported that Anderson isn’t the only person in the mix for a top role in a revamped Raiders front office.

Schefter reports that Scott O’Neil, former president of Madison Square Garden, is talking with Davis and others about joining the Raiders as team president and instituting significant changes to the organization. O’Neil watched the final game of the regular season from the Raiders sideline, which is when the discussions about coming aboard began. According to Schefter, the Raiders are more focused on O’Neil than they are on Anderson at this point.

Amy Trask is currently the Raiders’ CEO and it’s not clear how any new hire would impact her role in the organization or if the hiring of O’Neil or anyone else would impact the security of General Manager Reggie McKenzie and coach Dennis Allen.

    And the Raiders’ march towards being a modern NFL organization continues. Keep it up, Mark!

    Looks like with the new regime, Amy Task is on the way out. Change is in effect.

    get the front office correct, then the players I guess, but I don’t see how we can ever be stable!!

    This is all on the business side and will have no effect on McKenzie or Allen’s position. It’s all about the Raiders needing to generate more revenue and getting a new stadium done.

    People aren’t giving Mark Davis the credit he deserves for the challenge he’s taking on. He’s dragging this organization kicking and screaming into the 21st century. I applaud him.

    Amen megaroad1. spot on.

    I hope they already replaced that overhead projector.

    On a serious note, if Amy is on her way out, I hope it’s on her own terms. She was a loyal employee who actual loves the football and the Raiders.

    Here’s to a new era of excellence

    And even to the haters, just remember that the NFL is more exciting when the Raiders are good.

    Correct….

    I don’t know why Reggie and Dennis are even apart of this conversation.

    Wonder if Marc Davis is looking to take the team back to LA?

    Amy trask has always had ties to LA so if anything she would be best to lead a charge back to LA. I wonder if she is on the chopping block for possibly stalling a deal in Oakland

    Keep it up!

    in other words Mark Davis is man enough to know he needs some help, as his dad shoes are a lot to fill.

    I will say some fans who are calling for reggies head on a platter, need to give Reggie some time. Both the niners , and ravens are examples how you build a championship team through the draft. Reggie doesn’t even get a full deck of picks until next year. It will take another year of cleaning some of the existing challenges that are still present.
