Firing Tom Cable wasn’t a popular move among a lot of Raiders players, but hiring Hue Jackson should smooth things over.
Jason Campbell joined PFT Live Tuesday and was excited with what Jackson will bring to the table.
“He’s a very energetic coach, very competitive, he’s fiery . . . never a dull moment,” Campbell told Florio.
For Campbell, the move could provide a career boost. Cable seemed to prefer Bruce Gradkowski and that could have been a factor in Cable’s removal. It’s a big year for Campbell, who wants to establish himself as the long-term answer in Oakland rather than someone whose status is questioned each year.
