Davis told reporters Tuesday that he wouldn't rule out contacting Jon Gruden about taking over for the fired Dennis Allen.
"I don't know," Davis said of Gruden. "He may reach out to me, I may reach out to him -- I may reach out to anybody. I'm not going to talk about future coaches."
Davis told reporters Tuesday that he traded voice mails with Allen but has yet to speak with the fired coach, per Steve Corkran of Bay Area News Group. He also said that he never considered firing McKenzie, whose mere presence might cloud the hiring of a one-stop-shop coach looking to pick his own players.
The first-year starter remains an unproven commodity under center, but Breer has been told that Gruden "really likes" Carr.
NFL Media columnist Michael Silver told NFL Total Access on Tuesday that an "emotional connection" still exists between Gruden and the Raiders, with sources telling him "that there have been overtures, even before this, to Jon Gruden -- that Mark Davis is prepared to spend a lot of money, because that's what it would take to pry Jon out of the booth and back to Oakland."
We still see this reunion as a massive longshot.
