When asked, Gruden would not comment specifically about the Oakland Raiders, saying he would rather not speculate because there is not any news at this time to report. I cant say I havent taken any phone calls.

However, the Raiders - a trendy Super Bowl pick entering the season - have been one of the NFL's biggest disappointments this season with a (not nice) 6-9 record. One team that could join the carousel party are the Oakland Raiders.

ESPN reported the Raiders interest in the ESPN analyst Sunday morning.

Gruden's name surfaces each season as a potential candidate for head coach vacancies. I take a lot every year from coaches, some others.

One ownership source told ESPN that the owners "might not be so quick to approve the deal" because they wouldn't want to set a precedent.

"I spoke to Mark Davis after the game and Mark let me know that he's not going to be bringing me back", Del Rio said at the podium.

China Caught Illegally Selling Oil To North Korea By US Satellites
The US Treasury Department later placed six North Korean shipping and trading companies and 20 of their vessels on sanctions list. China has voted in favor of three UN Security Council resolutions strengthening sanctions on the North since the summer.

Another NFL source close to this situation said Oakland's owner has always held a high regard for Gruden dating back to when Gruden coached the team between 1998 and 2001 until long after Davis' father Al made a trade with Tampa Bay that included Gruden.

It was recently reported that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were Gruden's preferred destination if he returned to coaching; Gruden was Tampa Bay's coach from 2002-2008 and won the Super Bowl in his first season with the team. Imagine going up to your girlfriend of three years and saying, "I'm going to propose to this other girl I dated from 1999 to 2001 and if she says no, then I'll probably propose to you".

So much in fact that they're willing to make it rain loads of dollars to bring him back. "Im here to help people".

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. Which actually gives him less experience than Simms, who spent a year as a coaching assistant with the Patriots.

Gruden will have not been in the professional coaching ranks in almost a full decade by the time next season rolls around. Gruden was in the booth for his final Monday Night Football game of the season last week in Philadelphia, when the Eagles hosted Davis' Raiders.

Gannon never has coached; he went straight to broadcasting upon his retirement.
