No changes yet in Raiders front office

The report that Raiders coach Jon Gruden is making changes to the team’s front office came as news to the team’s front office.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, no changes have happened in Oakland. This doesn’t mean that changes won’t be coming. They just haven’t occurred yet.

That said, changes are expected, sooner or later. There’s a belief in league circles that Washington president Bruce Allen hopes to eventually return to the Raiders, where he’d reunite with coach Jon Gruden. Both were previously together with the Raiders and, after that, the Buccaneers.

If it happens, the thinking is that Allen would serve in an executive-type role, with no direct input over personnel but a significant role in managing the business — including the team’s new Las Vegas stadium.

  1. >.There’s a belief in league circles that Washington president Bruce Allen hopes to eventually return to the Raiders, where he’d reunite with coach Jon Gruden. Both were previously together with the Raiders and, after that, the Buccaneers.

    This will make the Redskin fans happy. As well as the rest of the AFC West.

  2. I could almost return as a fan of the Redskins if the Allen brat were to depart the Redskins and to infect another team with his incompetence.

    Oh, joy!

  3. They can barely get past the draft without dysfunction. What makes Raider fans think Chucky can last ten years? Oh wait … ha, ha! I said “Raider fans” and “think” in the same sentence.

    Never mind.

  4. Smart Redskins fans aren’t overly excited about this news unless Dan Snyder is selling the team and going with Bruce. Snyder is the common denominator over the years.

  5. OMG, I would love to see “winning off the field” Bruce go. Please take him Raiders. The only better news could be that Snyder sells.

    Bruce Allen is only in Washington to work on a new stadium, and pretending to know football is just one of the perks he gets for being the stadium lackey.

    No new stadium yet btw so he’s not good at either role.
