For over a decade now, if a Raiders player or coach wanted a shot at a ring they had to go elsewhere. That remains the case and there are several of them who will be looking to get that ring this Sunday.
Here is the list of hopefuls:
S Michael Huff - Raiders former seventh overall pick in 2006. He spent the first seven years of his NFL career as the full time starter for the Raiders. He was released prior to last season, signed with Ravens, was cut, and then joined the Broncos as a reserve safety.
QB coach Greg Knapp - The team's quarterbacks coach, he spent two stints with the Raiders as offensive coordinator (2007-08, 2012).
LB Chris Clemons - After his first two seasons in Washington, he signed with the Raiders in 2007 and revived his career. He went on to play for the Eagles for two seasons and has now been a fulltime starter for the Seahawks for the past four seasons, averaging nearly double digits in sacks (9.5) over that time.
OG/OT Paul McQuistan - Former third round pick for the Raiders, spent his first four seasons with the team. He has been a full time starter with the Seahawks the past three seasons.
TE Zach Miller - Former second round pick by the Raiders, he was their leading receiver for three seasons before leaving as a free agent to sign with the Seahawks. He has been in Seattle for the past three seasons.
OL coach/Asst HC Tom Cable - He was promoted from offensive line coach to interim head coach of the Raiders in 2008 when the team fired Lane Kiffin. The interim tag was removed and he remained head coach for two more seasons after that before being replaced by Hue Jackson. He immediately was hired to coach the offensive line in Seattle and has since added the title of assistant head coach under Pete Carroll.
