ALAMEDA, Calif. — The players packed up their lockers, coach Hue Jackson summed up the season and the Oakland Raiders spent the day saying goodbyes instead of preparing for the playoffs.
A day after wrapping up a disappointing 8-8 season with a 38-26 loss to San Diego that cost them the AFC West title, the Raiders go into an offseason that promises plenty of change.
The team plans to hire a general manager to help fill the void left by the death of longtime owner Al Davis last October, could change defensive coordinators and defensive scheme and must make additions to the roster if Oakland is going to end a nine-year playoff drought.
