The Autumn wind might still be a Raider, but a spring wind blew longtime scouting director Jon Kingdon out of town on Monday.
The move wasn't a reflection on Kingdon's job this past weekend. Rather, it was about general manager Reggie McKenzie putting his stamp on the organization in Oakland. As a top Al Davis lieutenant, it was simply Kingdon's time to go.
The GM walked into a mess and will need time to clean it up.
