Two more Raiders front-office executives exit the team

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas. But apparently only for a year.

Two more front-office executives have left the Raiders, increasing the recent total to four.

Joining team president Marc Badain and V.P. of strategy and business development Brandon Doll as former Raiders employees are CEO Ed Villanueva and controller Araxie Grant, via the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Coupled with multiple abrupt player retirements, it’s a strange time for a franchise that is struggling to become relevant in a top heavy AFC.

No reasons have been given for any of the departures, which come at a time when the organization should be doing victory laps over the swanky new stadium and the revenue streams that come from it, not accepting (or perhaps forcing) resignations.

  1. I wonder how toxic a workplace has to be for people to walk away from 7-figure jobs.

  2. Gruden is placing blame on the front office for his field failures. Saw this play out a bit in Tampa.

  3. There’s something bigger going on here. Interested to see how this unfolds.

  4. Maybe they are Los Angeles execs who never wanted to relocate to Vegas. Helped the team through the transition, but not willing to relocate their families.

    I worked in sports for 15 years. No matter the title – they are lucky if they are 6-figure jobs.

  6. Great culture you have brewing there Raiders. They will continue to stink.

  7. This is odd. These are all from the business side of the operation not the football side. Regardless of on field results these should be great times with the new stadium, new TV deals etc…

  8. Theory: Raiders front office employees have been talking to their peers working for other teams and have found out they’re making a lot less.

  9. Nobody knows what happened. They may have all been fired. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.
