With no cap space, Raiders forced to try other tricks

Report: Raiders interested in Mike Holmgren to fill a front-office job

Long-time Packers and Seahawks head 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.

The Raiders did not respond to an e-mail seeking comment on the report. 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.

Another night. Another rumor of an AFC West team trying to get up to par with the Denver Broncos.

The trouble for the rest of the AFC West is the move that really mattered happened last year when the Broncos signed Peyton Manning.

Besides, the legend of Mike Holmgren > Mike Holmgren. 

I’m glad we had this talk.  Now, vaya con Dios, Brah.
