Gruden, who is entering 2 of the 10-year contract worth a reported $100 million, also said he had been fine with that notion.
Both were joking, but this really is true — neither Davis nor Gruden want anything regarding the series, which is a hit for fans however, a dragon trainers, team and front-office personnel who do not want any laundry, dirty or being aired on national tv.
Teams have been exempt from consideration if they have a first-year coach, have played in the postseason the last two years or have been around”Hard Knocks” at the previous ten years.
“I will only fire Jon and hire back him [after another team is chosen],” Davis said jokingly at the NFL owners meetings.
Davis said the timing for an appearance only doesn’t feel right.
“It would be disruptive,” he said. “We’ve got a lot of business to look after, prepare for the summer season. I appreciate they may think we’d be great TV, but we have some thing to achieve.”
Here’s the thing — business, since Antonio Brown would state, is boomin’, therefore are Raiders storylines. From Gruden’s”Chucky” persona to brand fresh general director Mike Mayock’s recent tv ago to huge personalities in the roster in Mr. Big Chest himself (Brown) and linebacker Vontaze Burfict into quarterback/family man Derek Carr’s church and charity job to, maybe, a Marshawn Lynch return.
Plus the Raiders are guaranteed to have big names at camp via the draft, and where they have four of the first 3-5 picks.
Oh, plus it’s scheduled to become the Raiders’ last season in Oakland until the 20 20 move to Las Vegas.
A few Raiders officials believed a choice which team will likely appear on the series could be reached at the close of the week.
In February,” Lions coach Matt Patricia and overall director Bob Quinn did actually be doing what they could to divert the hit HBO series to Gruden and the Raiders, together with Patricia saying,”I think Jon Gruden is an excellent selection for that series. I think the Oakland Raiders and everything they’ve got going on today could be fantastic viewing for all of us to watch.”
