The Rams have the ability to reject the move because Olson isn't leaving for a head-coaching job. The Bucs made a decision to retain Dirk Koetter and Gruden is headed to Oakland to officially be introduced as head coach of the Raiders on Tuesday.

Questions about Gruden's "control" should be answered tomorrow when the Raiders introduce Gruden at team headquarters in Alameda.

"Great coach. Great coach, great motivator, great leader, great teacher in terms of just understanding the big picture", McVay said Sunday. "He's been a great coach to us. He's a guy that I've always had a lot of respect for". Gruden has a career record of 95-81, and he helped lead the 2002 Tampa Bay Buccaneers to a Super Bowl win. Louis Rams (2006-07), Buccaneers (2009-11), Raiders (2013-14) and Jacksonville Jaguars (2015-16). Oakland won 12 games in 2016 to earn Del Rio a four-year extension but the team fell flat this season. "We can't thank him enough".

Eagles open as historic home underdogs to Falcons
The Eagles finished the regular season 13-3 and were led for most of the season by MVP candidate Carson Wentz . The Saints beat the Carolina Panthers 31-26 in the wild-card round.

Last offseason, one of the main reasons why the Los Angeles Rams were so excited to bring Sean McVay on board was due to his history of developing quarterback, mainly his previous two years working with Kirk Cousins on the Washington Redskins. It far exceeded my expectations, as far as what he's done for myself and our whole quarterback room.

Prior to Olson, Goff worked with 2000 Heisman Trophy victor Chris Weinke as a rookie in 2016.

"If that opportunity does present itself - the respect we have for Coach Olson, that's something that we'll allow him to pursue", McVay said.

Pence to Visit Israel, Egypt, Jordan
The vice president plans to leave January 19 for Egypt, where he will meet with President Abdel Fattah Sisi. Sissi has agreed to meet with Pence, despite the deep unpopularity of Trump's decision.

"It'll be fine", he said.

So, yes. Hiring Gruden was clearly a way in which the Raiders hope to keep their fans loyal to the franchise after they leave for Las Vegas, but their Northern California rivals were also guilty of the same when they hired Kyle Shanahan.

McVay heaped praise on the 54-year-old Olson. "We'll see what happens from there".
