Ian Rapoport reports that it’s still “too early” for the Raiders to fire HC Dennis Allen barring a “Tampa Bay Buccaneers-type meltdown.”
Raiders owner Mark Davis was patient with Allen during the offseason and even allowed him to bring back his entire staff, so the expectation is that he will give Allen another opportunity to right the ship.
