Besides QB coach Brian Callahan leaving the Raiders to become the Bengals offensive coordinator, Jon Gruden also confirmed he has a new defensive line coach in Brentson Buckner, as he will replace Mike Trgovac, who is in line for a promotion in the organization, Gruden said. The Raiders are still searching for a new strength and conditioning coordinator and could hire one this week, Gruden said, but could wait until the combine to hire a new QB coach.

Does Jon Gruden expect Marshawn Lynch to be re-signed by the Raiders? "I don't know," Gruden said Tuesday at the Senior Bowl. "I don't know. I don't know yet. I think, when we get back, after the Super Bowl, we'll have a lot better indication on his health and his desire, what he wants to do. I'm sure, if he wants to play, somebody like me would love to have him back." Lynch suffered a groin injury in mid-October and spent the rest of the season on Injured Reserve.

The Raiders played host to the Seattle Seahawks at Wembley last October, after playing two straight years in Mexico City.

With Steelers president Art Rooney telling the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette it's "hard to envision" Antonio Brown returning to Pittsburgh, here's what Raiders coach Jon Gruden said about the All-Pro receiver on Dec. 5: "He can run every route you dream up. I say that about other receivers but he can run double moves, he can run by you, he can run crossing routes, he's very good after the catch. What's the greatest thing about this man? I've told all of our receivers, if you get a chance to watch him practice, you'll see what unlocks the greatness in him. He's the hardest working man, I think, in football. Hardest working player I've ever seen practice. I've seen Jerry Rice, I've seen a lot of good ones, but I put Antonio Brown at the top. If there are any young wideouts out there, I'd go watch him practice. You figure out yourself why he's such a good player."

Former Raiders DB, and current ESPN analyst, Charles Woodson honors Vance Bedford, his position coach at Michigan at the Coaching Corps Game Changer Awards, presented by NBC Sports Bay Area. "He coached me hard," Woodson said, "and I needed to be coached hard...he taught me the game. He taught me the position. I don't win the Heisman Trophy without coach Bedford."

Mayock: Gruden still has final say (1:41)

New Raiders general manager Mike Mayock, to ESPN's Steve Levy, on how the power dynamic will work between him and coach Jon Gruden: "In all honesty, Jon's got final say, if it ever comes to that, and I've got zero problems with that. Now, having said that, I think we're going to come to a consensus and I like a little yelling, a little screaming, a little fighting for what player you believe in. But at the end of the day, I guarantee you, Jon Gruden and I are going to know what a Raider looks like and smells like. I don't think we're going to have any issues."

Just spoke with the Raiders' two-time Super Bowl-winning coach Tom Flores, who is one of 15 modern-era finalists for Pro Football Hall of Fame consideration. "It's quite a thrill to get this far," Flores told me. "We'll see what happens. It's certainly encouraging and exciting to think about it. But I don't know how to feel about it because I've never gotten this far before." Flores is, as they say, now "in the room" for Hall discussion on Super Bowl weekend. To be elected, a finalist must receive a minimum positive vote of 80 percent from the 48 selectors. Former Cardinals and Chargers coach Don Coryell is also a finalist and for comparison sake, Flores was 11-5 against the architect of "Air Coryell" and Coryell never won a Super Bowl. Plus, Flores, who was 83-53 as Raiders coach from 1979-87 and 8-3 in the playoffs, was 6-0 with the Raiders against Don Shula, the NFL's all-time winningest coach. "I'm in the room," Flores, the first minority coach to win a Super Bowl, said with a laugh. "We'll see what they think of me in the room." Flores, the first Latino quarterback in pro football history as well as the first minority general manager, with the Seahawks, has two other rings, as an assistant on John Madden's Super Bowl XI-winning staff and as Len Dawson's backup with the Chiefs for Super Bowl IV.
