It's possible that Jon Gruden is just another Joe Gibbs

However, failure to reach the Super Bowl tried the patience of team owner Al Davis.

That connection alone mandates the application of skepticism to any aspect of the report that seems self-serving to Gruden, including the eye-rolling notion that he prefers to wait to make a decision until after the regular season ends and the Raiders decide whether to keep coach Jack Del Rio.

Mark Davis the owner of the Raiders has offered a stake in the team to Gruden in the past, said sources, and if that were to be offered again by Davis, Gruden's contract would need to be approved by the National Football League owners.

The Raiders do now have a coach who received a contract extension last season. Then they lost their last four games.

The Raiders were a trendy preseason pick to make the Super Bowl, but the Silver and Black have been very disappointing as they enter Week 17 with a 6-9 record.

Gruden did not directly comment on the report when he was quoted in the story.

Indeed, hiring Gruden would feel like a panic move for a team that won 12 games just one season ago and isn't that far off from a return to prominence if the proper steps are taken with the roster and assistant coaching staff.

A surprise candidate has emerged as a potential destination for Jon Gruden's seemingly inevitable return to coaching, but it probably should not have been a surprise at all - the Oakland Raiders. But his connection with the Raiders and the fact that it was reported by Adam Schefter and Chris Mortenson, Gruden's colleagues at ESPN, lend this one more credibility.

Gruden, who has been out of coaching since being fired after the Bucs collapsed down the stretch of the 2008 season, has been the color analyst on "Monday Night Football" broadcasts since 2009.

One ownership source told ESPN that the owners "might not be so quick to approve the deal" because they wouldn't want to set a precedent. His interest in rejoining the Raiders could be for two reasons. He met with the Colts last year and has been pursued by the Raiders in other years. The mere possibility of Gruden coming back will create as much or more excitement among the fan base than it did in Tampa, where Gruden was recently added to the Ring of Honor.

Gannon never has coached; he went straight to broadcasting upon his retirement.
