    Who else on TV might join the Raiders coming up? Owner seems to hire whoever he watches on TV. First coach, now GM

    Raiders should go all-in on hiring TV analysts for their coach/FO personnel. Mel Kiper as their OC. Todd McShay as their DC.

    With his profile from the draft he could easily make it up in endorsements and the such but you're probably right that cash is king.

    The Raiders have 3 first round picks including the second overall, so how they do in this draft will have major repercussions for the franchise. Its a defining moment for their future so the hiring makes sense.

    Anyone know if Gruden already has a good relationship with Mayock through broadcasting? That might also explain it.

    After seeing with Amazon, HBO and NFLN how some of these organizational “brain trusts” operate, this is likely a very solid move. I will miss Mike on TV much more than Gruden.

    Seems like a good pairing for Gruden, as long as Mayock understands that Gruden's the one with the last word.

    BB is the Kevin Bacon of the NFL.

    Mayock was on the Giants in 1982-1983.

    I'll let you connect the dots

    :p

    Too late, they gave away their whole roster and Carr seems to be a bust.

    I don't understand the Kevin Bacon reference. Who is he and what did he do?

    I suppose he doesn’t need the money. I think this is just a personal challenge for him. This is playing madden for real.

    They've got a bunch of draft picks in a draft that's considered to be tremendous for defensive players. They could do a significant overhaul.

    According to OTC, the Raiders are not only going to have all those draft picks to work with, but they're also going to have something like $70m under the cap to start the year.
