Holmgren already has a relationship with Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, who has also worked for the Packers . Holmgren is on vacation in Europe right now, and the Raiders have not set a timeline for finding a new top front office executive, although they have been actively looking for several months.
Holmgren was team president of the Browns from 2010 to 2012. He was released following an ownership change. According to ESPN, NFL senior vice president of football operations Ray Anderson has also been talking with the Raiders about a leadership position.
