Tim Kawakami said set-up is changing with Oakland Raiders
Kawakami said that Jackson’s brashness off the field hurt his chances. “He hasn’t been a guy other teams wanted to hire,” Kawakami said.
Kawakami said that this is a new situation in Oakland. The Raiders haven’t had a general manager. “This is going to be a GM-run franchise,” Kawakami said. “You’re not going after the Gruden’s or the Cowher’s.”
Kawakami said the Carson Palmer trade put them behind the 8-Ball because they don’t have good picks moving forward.
