Oakland Raiders Going All In To Finally Get Jon Gruden
If Gruden didn't want the Raiders job, he could have simply said, "I've talked to plenty of suitors, but I'm staying at ESPN". A healthy Derek Carr was primed to bring his team back to the promised land after so much wandering in the desert.
It's possible the Packers could extend McCarthy again or start over with a new deal once a general manager is hired. Thompson then fired Mike Sherman as head coach after the 2005 season and hired McCarthy. He replaced Mike Sherman as GM for the Packers in 2005.
However, Thompson's last few years drafting have not been great and he has not given Rodgers the help on either side of the ball that he needs to win more championships.
A former linebacker for the Houston Oilers, Thompson broke into scouting with the Packers under Hall of Fame GM Ron Wolf in 1992. As is custom, the team will reportedly review several internal candidates. Packer President Mark Murphy made the announcement at the press conference today that confirmed that Ted Thompson would be moving into a senior advisor role. Director of football operations Eliot Wolf and director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst may be viewed as the favorites to earn a promotion to GM.
