The Las Vegas Raiders continue to compile a list of names for their freshly-vacant general manager position. On Tuesday afternoon, NFL Media reported that Las Vegas has asked the Cincinnati Bengals for permission to talk to front office assistant Trey Brown about the position.
The #Raiders have contacted the #Bengals to request an interview with Trey Brown for their vacant GM job, per source. Brown is regarded in NFL circles as sharp, knowledgeable and a relentless worker, and he has impressed ownership in multiple GM interviews.— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) January 18, 2022
The Raiders fired general manager Mike Mayock on Monday. Also that day, reports emerged that the Raiders have asked permission to talk to New England assistant Dave Ziegler about the job and that Indianapolis Colts’ front office assistant Ed Dobbs (who started his NFL career with the Raiders nearly 20 years ago) and Raiders’ front office assistant DuJuan Daniels.
Now, Brown is in the mix. He has Oakland roots, which could be attractive to Davis.

Most importantly, Brown is well respected in the NFL. Brown, 36, reportedly interviewed for the Raiders’ general manager job with Davis and Jon Gruden before Mayock was hired. He started working for the Bengals last year. He was previously with the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles.
