Meanwhile, in football news, the Raiders have placed OL Jon Feliciano on season-ending injured reserve and waived RB C.J. Anderson, a week after signing him. The Raiders added a pair of familiar faces on the offensive line in signing G/T Denver Kirkland and G Cameron Hunt. As such, now only eight of former general manager Reggie McKenzie's 50 pre-Jon Gruden draft picks from 2012 through 2017 are on the Raiders' current 53-man roster while 37 players on the 53-man never appeared on that roster at any time last season.

Here is a current look at the site of the Raiders future home in Las Vegas.

Here's what Raiders owner Mark Davis told me last month in the event of a lawsuit being filed by Oakland: "Emotionally, I would say, why would I give them $3 (million), $4 (million), $5 million in rent (for the 2019 season) that they're going to turn around and use to sue me? But, at the same time, if they'll have us, I can't turn on the fans. I can't do it. And this is terrible negotiating I'm doing now. I'm going to get killed. But that's just the way I am. But, if in fact it does get ugly, and can't be bridged, we do have options."

Jon Gruden, on if he was surprised by the firing of Reggie McKenzie as Raiders general manager: “When you're 3-10, I'm not surprised with anything that happens in this league. I've been fired, I've been traded. It's a horrible part of this business and I'm very sensitive to it.”

Jon Gruden said he was not sure if he would be involved in any interviews for Reggie McKenzie's replacement. "I know Mark (Davis) is going to accumulate a list of names and candidates and I'm sure we'll discuss those people later this week. Right now, I don't have any idea...I'm not revealing any candidates because I don't know of any.” Gruden did say that Shaun Herock, the Raiders' college scouting director, would handle the day-to-day responsibilities in McKenzie's absence. “I expect him to be a big part of the organization moving forward, honestly," Gruden said of Herock. Gruden also said that Joey Clinkscales, McKenzie's right-hand man and the Raiders' director of player personnel, was still employed by the team.

Jon Gruden said he went home after beating the Steelers last night and was not part of the meeting in which Reggie McKenzie was relieved of his duties as general manager. “Obviously, there was a meeting last night and changes had been made," Gruden said. "I respect everything that this organization is about. I can't exactly answer why the change was made last night but changes were made and we've got to continue to fight and continue to build this team back and that's what we're going to do.” Asked if firing McKenzie was solely a Mark Davis decision, Gruden said, “We all work for the same man.”

Jon Gruden, on Reggie McKenzie: "He left some big shoes to fill...we were very good friends and we were connected. We were very connected...there was a meeting last night and changes were made. I can't exactly say why changes were made...we all work for the same man (in Mark Davis)." Gruden said he does not know if he will be involved in interviewing replacements. "I'm not revealing any candidates because I don't know of any."
