Report: Raiders talking with Holmgren about job

Long-time Packers and Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren is the latest candidate to surface in the Raiders search for an established football person to assume a leadership role.

ESPN cited two unnamed sources as saying the two sides have spoken about the prospect of Holmgren joining the Raiders in some capacity.

Zak Gilbert, the Raiders director of media relations, issued the following statement: “As a general policy, the Raiders don’t comment on personnel matters, so the team isn’t able to confirm or deny the report. If the organization has more to say in the future, I will let you know.”

Holmgren most recently was with the Cleveland Browns as their team president until he stepped down late last season. He and current Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie worked together when they were with the Packers.
In recent months, the Raiders reportedly interviewed Ray Anderson, the league’s senior vice president of football operations.

    We’re going pass rusher at # 3 or someone else on d-line. They’ve said it publicly more than once and it makes sense.

    I don’t think they’re talking to Palmer about restructuring in order to get him to a low contract so they can trade him and screw him over.

    Good luck getting others to “restructure” in the future if they try and pull that crap. Tremendously bad form that wouldn’t go over well at all, despite how badly some here wanna see Palmer humiliated for not being the hero you wanted. So that makes Geno Smith highly unlikely for the Raiders.

    You don’t draft Geno at 3 and have him sit on the bench in today’s day and age. You also don’t have a high paid veteran sit on the bench.

    A trade down to drop a few spots…remain in the top 10 and still snag a #2 would be preferable if we can get it.

    I think it’s possible.

    So totally not true. His Ejection Fraction was discovered to be 44-49%…normal is 50-75%..He showed no symptoms, He had no idea there was anything wrong nor did anyone else…This is the type of thing you discover during a routine health exam of your heart. Do you know what your Ejection Fraction is?
    Didn’t think so…

    Te’o is not worth a 1st round pick, but he’ll end up being a better LB than Slolando.

    (It’s so nice to somebody post in here that actually knows what they are talking about (you). So many half drunk trailer trash dbags in here always spewing garbage like they think they know everything (them)).

    Now that the Chiefs aquired Smith from the 49ers and the Jaguars have Gabbert, do we have any leverage with the 3rd pick? Is there anyone else that might want to trade with us in order to get Geno? If this is not the case, do we draft Geno and if so what happens to Palmer?

    Raider on!
