Sources: Raiders firings of Josh McDaniels, GM to cost nearly $85M





Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis demonstrated again this week that he will not let money influence how he operates his franchise.

The firings of head coach Josh McDaniels, general manager Dave Ziegler and some of the coaching staff will cost Davis approximately $85 million, league sources told ESPN.

Some of those costs will be defrayed by offset and mitigation, but the firings were, as one source described to ESPN, "an expensive move nonetheless."

The costs don't stop there for the Raiders, who also now must rework the contracts of interim head coach Antonio Pierce and interim GM Champ Kelly.
