Are we going to end up keeping Martha Raye, or look somewhere else?

Seems like next year is his final. Not certain, though.

1 yr ... CP would probally keep Jimmy for 1 more year and see if the offense came together anymore then...hire Al then!

According to the NFL, Jimmy Raye has been relieved of his duties and is no longer under contract.

He is currently being looked at by Chicago, Buffalo, and Washington. The only way he could return to KC is if CP/DV REHIRE him...it ain't gonna happen...

I wasn't aware JR was relieved...when did this happen?

Mr. Dole, looks like one way or another The Rams will get all our draft choices...

isn't there something about no comp if the guy gets a promotion, wouldn't OC/assistant HC be a promotion?....

Saunders is being considered for other HC jobs but I would guess he comes here if possible knowing he'll be HC in a couple of years with a team he likes....

Chris Palmer, former JVille OC, is now available...

Do we have a source for this? It's new to me.

Bob Dole can find nothing that indicates JR has been released.

I thought that Feb 1st, assistants no longer under contract were released. I know Raye doesn't have a contract for next year so I'm sure he's free to shop around.

That would be the spirit of the contractual agreement, Phil, but technically he is still a KC employee until Feb. 1, unless he is released.

I'm sure they are free to investigate other possibilities prior to Feb 1st. If we still wanted him, we would have resigned him. Are you wondering if we might be due some compensation?
