NFL rumors: Jay Gruden could join Raiders in 2020 if fired by Washington


It's been a rocky start to the year in the nation's capital.

Jay Gruden's Washington team has opened the season 0-3, offensive tackle Trent Brown still is holding out, and it appears the coach's time at the helm could be coming to an end.

But have no fear, lovers of all things Gruden family: Jay could find a soft landing spot should Washington owner Dan Snyder show him the door.

With his brother, Jon Gruden, leading the Raiders into Las Vegas in 2020, Jay Gruden reportedly could find his way onto the team's staff that season, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported Sunday, citing sources. 

Jay Gruden is well-liked around the NFL, and could become the Raiders' offensive coordinator and bump current offensive coordinator Greg Olson to quarterbacks coach.

Jay Gruden has accumulated a 35-48-1 record as the head coach in Washington. Even though Gruden was given a second contract by Snyder, La Canfora reported that sources wouldn't be shocked if this was the end of the line for the head coach in D.C.

Right now, Jon Gruden and the Raiders are focused on course correcting after a 1-2 start. Washington, however, might be done at 0-3. With no left tackle and Jay Gruden reluctant to play rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins, the season might be over in D.C.
