Working at the NFL scouting combine covering everything local _ Raiders, 49ers, Andrew Luck and the locals. A light day for Raiders news, with coach Dennis Allen not scheduled to speak until Friday and general manager Reggie McKenzie not at all, although I’ll endeavor to track him down if possible.
Did talk to Rich Gannon informally for a few minutes on a break from his Sirius radio show. He’s excited about the potential change in culture. I asked him if he thought Carson Palmer would be a fit for Greg Knapp’s offense and Gannon said he thought it would be fine with a few tweaks.
Gannon thinks Palmer’s skill set is roughly similar to that of Matt Schwab, who flourished under Knapp with the Houston Texans.
