Notes and news on a Tuesday afternoon
The agent for Winston Moss predicts his client will be an NFL head coach in the very near future.
But he wouldn't go as far as to predict it would be the Raiders, calling owner Al Davis a "wild card."
"He's either going to be back at Green Bay as the assistant head coach or possibly the defensive coordinator, or possibly be the next head coach of the Oakland Raiders," Moss' agent, Jack Bechta told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. "I think this is just the beginning for Winston Moss."
The report cited former Raiders' employee Mike Lombardi's site, nationalfootballpost.com, that the Raiders wanted to interview Moss about being their defensive coordinator, but were denied permission by the Packers.
Teams cannot forbid assistants for interviewing to be a head coach. Moss interviewed with the Raiders Monday.
*The projected top receiver in this year's NFL draft, Texas Tech's Michael Crabtree announced he was leaving school early to enter the draft.
Pending a good time in the 40-yard dash, expect the Raiders to take a long look at him if he's available or even trading up for Crabtree.
*Jerry McDonald's blog reports Tom Cable's father passing last week and that a memorial service for Thomas Lee Cable, Sr., will be held Wednesday. Davis has always been very understanding in these situations so expect Cable to have the full support of the franchise during this time.
