Raiders reporter Paul Gutierez talked with Dari & Mel about Jon Gruden and what they are looking to fix with the roster in the draft.

Reggie McKenzie would not got into specifics as to why punter Marquette King was released, though he did offer up this nugget: "His contract was pretty steep." King was due base salaries of $2.9 million, $2.8 million and $2.75 million the next three seasons. McKenzie signed King to that contract and King ended up signing with the rival Broncos.

Reggie McKenzie would not say if the Raiders would use the 5th-year option on Amari Cooper this offseason. Not with so much concentration on the draft at this point in time. "Don't want to put the cart before the horse," McKenzie said. "We like Amari."

Would Reggie McKenzie rule out drafting his son Kahlil? "I would not," McKenzie said after a lengthy pause and smile. "Our coaches like him." McKenzie said he has been trying to convince his son to convert from defensive tackle to the offensive line for a while now. "He can do both," he said, adding that he has done an intensive background check on the former Tennessee player, though his mother would not offer any more insight.

"He's a bowling ball of butcher knives." - Reggie McKenzie, on Jon Gruden.

Reggie McKenzie said he has not had contact with Khalil Mack and is not sure if the standout edge rusher will attend next week's voluntary veteran minicamp in Alameda. "We've been focusing on the draft," McKenzie said, "and the coaching staff has been working with the players that are here." Mack is in line for a hefty contract extension and after being a regular at Oakland's offseason training program, has been a no show since it began on April 9. McKenzie does not see Mack's situation as being related to that of Aaron Donald.

"Nothing (new) there. He's still a free agent." - Reggie McKenzie, on NaVorro Bowman.

How different will the Raiders' draft room be for Reggie McKenzie with Jon Gruden in the room? "It's a collaborative effort," McKenzie said.

Travel distances can have a slight effect on team fortunes. This season, Oakland, Seattle, and the Chargers each travel about 30,000 round trip miles. At the other end of the spectrum are Carolina, Atlanta, Cincinnati, and the Jets who each travel fewer than 10,000 miles.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Raiders will have the most miles to travel in the NFL this season with 31,716. The Chargers are second with 30,797 miles, followed by the Seahawks at 29,088 and the Jaguars at 20,359. All four teams play in London this season.
