His son, Mark, brought in Reggie McKenzie, who fired coach Hue Jackson and hired former Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen. But that was just the beginning.
McKenzie made a number of moves this offseason. First, he released players such as Stanford Routt and Kameron Wimbley, much needed moves since the Raiders were so far over the salary cap.
Next, he went on a flurry of contract restructures, from Carson Palmer to Michael Huff to Richard Seymour.
Then, he signed economically signed several cornerbacks and Mike Brisiel, and traded for running back Mike Goodson.
But there is much to be done—both to the roster and in the front office, as Al Davis' passing means the entire organization will undergo a transition.
