Ever since the debacle that was the referee lockout, there has been a sense in league circles that executive V.P. of football operations Ray Anderson could be on his way out — whether by choice or otherwise.
Coincidentally or otherwise, he could be on his way out.
Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that the Raiders have had exploratory talks with Anderson regarding the possibility of joining the team in “senior executive front office job.” Per Mort, owner Mark Davis is contemplating a restructuring of the organization.
Amy Trask has served as the Raiders’ Chief Executive since 1997, but her involvement primarily comes on the business side of the operation. It’s unclear whether and to what extent a restructuring would affect her role.
Before joining the league office in 2006, Anderson served as a vice president of the Falcons. Before that, he was an agent.
