ONN – Jon Gruden Oakland Raiders Head Coach At 2019 NFL Owners Meeting
Coach Gruden did his least favorite thing to do this morning: meet with the NFL Media. The man who came in with great fanfare and giant $100 million guaranteed contract, said he was happy with the shape his Oakland Raiders were taking as they head toward the 2019 NFL Draft. But he was most effusive about his new star wide receiver Antonio Bryant.
The Raiders earned the services of the former Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver in NFL Free Agency this year, and after a much publicized squabble between Steelers QB Ben Rothlisberger and Bryant. The Raiders, aided by a large salary cap space, were able to offer Bryant a deal that made him the highest paid wide-out in the NFL.
“I love Antonio Bryant’s energy,” Gruden said during our 40 minute talk. He’s the kind of guy who brings it. I’m gonna have him work out with (San Francisco 49ers Wide Receiver) Jerry Rice on that hill. I like players who bring it.”
I asked Coach Gruden to assess his 2018 NFL performance and his first year back as a head coach after a 10-year-absence, and he said “4 and 12 That’s all: 4 and 12.”
On the subject of the controversial pass interference no-call against the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game, and the list of new pass interference penalty proposals, Gruden said “You can’t take human error out of the game. There are always situations that you’re going to disagree.
I talked to Atlanta Falcons Head Coach Dan Quinn about Coach Gruden’s take and he agrees as does San Francisco 49rs Head Coach Mike Shanahan.
Stay tuned. There are more highlights from the Jon Gruden Interview at the 2019 NFL Annual Meeting.
