NFL News: Tom Cable Out In Oakland

ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the Oakland Raiders will not pick up Tom Cables option for the 2011 season. Several media outlets suggested that this was the most likely┬áscenario earlier in the week but we were all waiting on Al Davis to make it official.

The fact that Raiders offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has been contacted to interview for the San Francisco 49ers head coaching job may have increased the urgency for Davis to make a decision.

NFL Networks Jason La Canfora tweets that Jackson is a “strong internal option” for the Raiders coaching vacancy.
