Dennis Green Would Not Pick Up the Phone if Al Davis Called

For some reason or another, legendary NFL coach Dennis Green, always seems to be linked to the Raiders any time there’s talk about a coaching vacancy in Oakland. Prior to the Raiders tabbing Lane Kiffin for the job, it was said that Denny Green would be their man. Not so much.
