Oracle Park in San Francisco.A person with knowledge of the negotiations said Sunday night the two sides are in discussions Johnathan Abram Jersey 2019 , but no deal has been reached. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because nothing has been finalized.NBC Bay Area reported that an announcement of the Raiders’ plans to play in San Francisco will be made this week.The Raiders are looking for a home for 2019 after the city of Oakland sued the team and the NFL over the planned move to Las Vegas in 2020. The Raiders has no lease for 2019 and owner Mark Davis dropped out of negotiations with Oakland after the suit was filed in December.The Raiders were still considering Oakland, as well as the possibility of sharing Levi’s Stadium with the San Francisco 49ers. A final decision is needed soon so the NFL can start making its 2019 schedule.“I think the hope of Mark is to continue to be in the Bay Area with the Raiders’ fans,” commissioner Roger Goodell said at a pre-Super Bowl news conference on Wednesday.The Raiders are still planning to practice at their facility in Alameda, making staying in the Bay Area the most logical choice.Davis has always been opposed to sharing the stadium with the 49ers and the legal wrangling with officials in Oakland have soured him on that option, leaving the Giants stadium in San Francisco as his possible preferred choice.But it doesn’t come without hurdles as the 49ers hold territorial rights to the city and the Raiders would need NFL approval to move there. The stadium would also need some modifications to be able to host NFL games and there would be scheduling issues to work out with the Giants, who have home games scheduled on two of first four Sundays of the upcoming NFL season.The stadium has been used for college football games in the past. There have been several bowl games played there and California played its 2011 games there when Memorial Stadium was being renovated.

It started with the rehiring of former head coach turned TV analyst Jon Gruden to be head coach. Gruden then selected Mike Mayock, the most respected TV draft analyst for the past couple decades, to be GM.Now they have done it again, bringing onboard longtime Pro Football Weekly draft analyst Nolan Nawrocki.There used to be a pretty defined separation between the media and the coaching and front offices. it was usually a one way street with coaches and executives heading to television. But not often the other way around.Nawrocki is often known for not sugar coating his opinions of draft prospects, drawing a good amount of controversy. His most controversial opinions were of several high profile draft quarterbacks. In particular his trashing of the characters of JaMarcus Russell, Cam Newton, Geno Smith, and Johnny Manziel Quinton Bell Oakland Raiders Jersey , suggesting they will not have NFL success. Three out of four aint bad. And some might suggest he wasn’t entirely wrong about Cam Newton’s character either despite Newton’s success in the league.Regardless of the troll level status Nawrocki seems to have developed in his career, he’s still consistently one of the most respected draft scouts out there. His emphasis on the character of players aligns with Gruden and Mayock’s emphasis as well. And, as it happens, Nawrocki credits Al Davis for helping to land him his spot as the successor to legendary PFW draft analyst Joel Buschsbaum. Davis was once a part owner of the magazine and at Nawrocki’s first scouting combine, Davis walked him around to meet NFL front office personnel. A few years later, in 2007, Davis wouldn’t listen to Nawrocki when he warned any prospective team of drafting JaMarcus Russell. He wrote that Russell showed a “lackadaisical approach to the game” and predicted that he would “require very tough coaching from a strong authoritative figure.”He particularly warned Al Davis, whose Raiders had the number one overall pick that year Quinton Bell Oakland Raiders Jersey , that Russell had bust written all over him.“I had three conversations with Al Davis that year,” Nawrocki said in a 2014 interview with Deadspin... “I told him that he should take Calvin Johnson or Adrian Peterson. That was the guy I was trying to help out. I know where Al was at that point in his career: He had lost some of the ears on the ground that he may have had when he was a little sharper. But Al was going to do what what Al was going to do.”Davis, of course, made Russell the number one overall pick and Russell went on to become the biggest bust in NFL history. While Calvin Johnson and Adrian Peterson are probably both headed for the Hall of Fame one day. Hinsight is 20/20. Nawrocki claims to have had foresight on that one. Gruden and Mayock want that foresight on their side.Follow @LeviDamien
