REPORT: Players In Raiders Locker Room Are Turning On Jon Gruden

A number of Oakland Raiders players are unhappy with the way head coach Jon Gruden has handled the trade of WR Amari Cooper, according to a report by The Athletic.

Multiple players, speaking to The Athletic anonymously expressed their frustration the they didn’t hear about Monday’s trade of Cooper to the Dallas Cowboys from Gruden, instead learning about it through the media.

“The Mack trade was a real stiff jab,” one player told The Athletic. “But the Cooper one was like a knockout punch, especially because we had just walked back in the door from the bye. We didn’t want to believe it was coming, and Coach said we weren’t going to trade him.”

“I think many of us realize we won’t be here next year, We are just waiting to see if we will be here next week.”

“You have to wonder if we haven’t been playing for draft picks all along,” the player said. “Despite everything the coaches told us at training camp.”

Raiders general manager Reggie Mckenzie told reporters Monday that he would not define anyone on the roster as untouchable, but Gruden told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen that the Raiders are “not trading anyone else” and they are “trying to stay competitive.”

Long story short, the Raiders are a hot mess and as the season progress, it’s only going to get worse.
