Jon Gruden is giving a whole new definition to the term "Gruden Grinders." In fact, Gruden is so dialed in, he hired a personal driver so he could watch film in the back of his SUV while traveling to and from work. 

There's no word on how many times Gruden used those screens for repeat viewings of "Chucky" yet. But Gruden might have used one of his many TV's to find his new general manager, Mike Mayock. Mayock was best known for his work as a pundit on the NFL Network before becoming the Oakland Raiders' general manager.

Unfortunately, Gruden's reportedly insane work ethic didn't translate into success for the Oakland Raiders last season. The Raiders went 4-12, and Gruden traded away franchise cornerstones like Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper. 

While the Raiders' roster is low on star talent, Oakland is now flooded with draft picks, including three first-round picks this season. We have the Raiders selecting Rashan Gary 4th overall in our most recent mock draft, as Gary would give them the bonafide pass rusher they sorely need.


Whether or not Jon Gruden's complete overhaul of the Raiders' roster will work remains to be seen, but we do know one thing, if Gruden fails, it won't be because of his work ethic.
