Jon Gruden and Reggie McKenzie

Jon Gruden and Reggie McKenzie

ESPN and NFL Network reported Monday that McKenzie held a meeting with the Raiders' scouting department on Monday morning to inform them he was sacked and would not accept the offer to stay in the role until January.

Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie has been fired, according to NFL Network, as the power struggle between him and Gruden reached a breaking point.

The Raiders have released Reggie McKenzie from his duties as General Manager.

Millane murder suspect is 'nice kid who fell out with everyone'
Justice Minister Andrew Little told media this morning it was "unfortunate the British papers have done what they've done". Justice Minister Andrew Little said the global media, particularly the British media were not helping the Millane family.

"#Raiders GM Reggie McKenzie had a meeting with his scouts today where he informed them he was sacked, per me and @TomPelissero". He took over a team with a ton of expiring/bloated contracts - thanks to former owner Al Davis - that was essentially in salary cap hell. The team went 39-70 over the almost seven full seasons he was general manager.

Since that time, the team has tumbled down the standing, replacing head coach Jack Del Rio with Jon Gruden and trading away two of his star players. He built a team that compiled a 12-4 record in 2016, and had a chance to make a deep run in the playoffs, but an unfortunate injury to Derek Carr forced the team to start Connor Cook, who is barely even serviceable. The Raiders coach said he went home after Sunday's win over the Steelers and heard there was a meeting and that McKenzie was let go. We are grateful for everything Reggie has done for this organization as a player, executive and member of the Raider family.
