Reggie McKenzie, Packers director of football operations, is expected to interview for Raiders GM position today, according to source— Sean Jensen (@skjensen) January 4, 2012
McKenzie is a former NFL linebacker who played for the Raiders and San Francisco 49ers, who first joined the Green Bay front office in 1994 as a pro personnel assistant, being promoted to director of pro personnel in 1997. He was promoted to director of football operations in 2008, where he provides NFL scouting reports, scouting of college prospects as well as making school visits, and works closely with Packers GM Ted Thompson on their annual NFL draft.
McKenzie would bring a lot of expertise with a successful franchise tot he GM position with the Raiders, and a steady hand at the helm, seeing that he's worked for 18 years with the Packers organization. It doesn't hurt that he's a former Raider himself either.
