Raiders are going all in to try and bring back Jon Gruden

Report Raiders set to pursue former coach John Gruden

But Oakland long has appealed to Gruden for a variety of reasons.

Additionally, per the report Mark Davis has offered Gruden an ownership stake previously, which could potentially come into play again.

An ownership source said owners might not be so quick to approve the deal, because they wouldn't want to establish a precedent. The offer, according to Mortensen, could include ownership stake and a backloaded contract that would allow Gruden to make the bulk of his money when the team moves to Las Vegas in order to avoid state tax.

There are other complications as well. He's making $6.5 million annually to talk about football, and not have the insane stress that comes with being an NFL head coach. The NFL has changed significantly since then, and while Gruden has remained close to the game, working as an analyst isn't the same as working as a head coach.

Teens Charged With Murder In Death Of Man Hit By Sandbag
The teens were initially charged with felonious assault, and murder charges were later added after Byrd succumbed to his injuries. The bag crashed through the windshield of a vehicle where 22-year-old Marquise Byrd was sitting in the passenger seat.

Gruden is quoted in the report: "I don't want to sit here and speculate. There is no news to report", Gruden told ESPN. I take a lot every year from coaches, some others. Guys want to bounce ideas off me. "I'm here to help people", Gruden said.

It appears it's not merely a pipe dream for the Raiders to persuade Gruden to re-join the head coaching ranks, as the report mentions that Gruden will be tempted to accept the offer, but would choose to wait until the end of the 2017 season to make his decision.

But it might be a different home that Gruden goes back to next season.

"The owner", one source said about Davis, "has an affinity for him". He has frequently been rumored to fill coaching vacancies, pro and college, since his firing by Tampa Bay after the 2008 season.

'MAKE AMERICA GAY AGAIN' - Rainbow flag hung near Mike Pence's vacation home
Over and over again, Pence has voted to prohibit same-sex marriage and permit anti-LGBT discrimination. Pence has notoriously supported legislation that critics say discriminates against gay people.

Gruden works for ESPN as a football analyst and was in the "Monday Night Football" booth for the Raiders' Christmas loss at Philadelphia. More and more, it looks as if this is it.

The year prior, the Raiders also gave general manager Reggie McKenzie an extension, and it's not known how Gruden's hiring would affect the general manager in terms of the draft and free agency.

Here's a bit more on why Gruden might be tempted to accept this position.
