Oakland Raiders Offseason News: Packers Director of Football Operations Reggie McKenzie To Interview For Raiders GM, According to Report

According to the Chicago-Sun Times' Sean Jensen, current Green Bay Packers director of football operations Reggie McKenzie will interview for the the Oakland Raiders' general manager position on Wednesday as the Silver and Black look to revamp their front office for the 2012 season.

Per Jensen on Twitter:

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.
