Payton to Raiders?

Hmmmm.....this could be the "big splash" hire some of you thought couldn't happen.

Whether it be Tomlin, Harbaugh, Payton, etc., but Mark Davis was dragging his feet for a reason.

I know in a previous post some began to bash the Payton to Raiders will never happen. This just shows that there is so much behind the scenes that is going on that we don't know.

Davis has interviews lined up with Mayo, Ryans and now reportedly Bowles....i hate to say it, but he might be doing nothing but adhering to the Rooney rule. He already got the Bisaccia hire out of the way. Not sure what to make of it.

Davis has already been on the phone with Payton's reps (I would assume). If it does happen I would think it would happen quick.
