  • Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr throws a pass during the first half of the team's NFL football game against the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday Dec. 31 2017 in Carson Calif

"I know him", Derek Carr said Sunday when asked about the Gruden reports. "But I knew this team and this brotherhood, and I owed it to all my coaches and all my teammates".

The Raiders are reportedly so interested in bringing Gruden back as their coach that they are willing to throw in an ownership stake in the team as part of the deal.

Even though Gruden has been hesitate in the past to return to coaching, he will have enough power within the organization that he can reshape the entire front office and coaching staff, though some holdovers still remain from his first time coaching the team.

Gruden previously coached the Raiders for four seasons from 1998 through 2001, with the team never finishing worse than 8-8 during that span.




Davis said in a statement that he appreciated Del Rio's effort in building the foundation for the future and thanked his family for contributing to the community. "I was supposed to be going to Tampa last week. There is no news to report", Gruden told ESPN on Saturday.

Del Rio signed a four-year contract extension through 2020 last offseason on the heels of a 12-4 campaign. Del Rio had been the ninth coach in Oakland since Gruden left but the only one to get the team to the playoffs. Del Rio said his first two years were great, while this year was a great disappointment. He owns a 100-85 career record and won a Super Bowl in the 2002 season with the Buccaneers over the Raiders. The Raiders won just 13 games in the three seasons before he arrived.

According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, however, there is only really a 50-50 chance of Del Rio being released at the end of the season.

Vea, in the team's worst-kept secret, confirmed to The Seattle Times that he is planning to hire an agent in the coming days and declare for the National Football League draft.
