The Las Vegas Raiders may turn to an in-house option to fill their vacant general manager position after Mike Mayock was fired earlier this month. Director of pro personnel Dwayne Joseph is reportedly lined up for an interview, according to Mike Jones of USA Today.

Raiders General Manager

Joseph has worked alongside Mayock in the Las Vegas front office for the last three seasons and has 24 years of overall NFL scouting experience to his name. The 49-year-old has spent time working with a number of teams including the Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears and Philadelphia Eagles.

It's notable to point out that Joseph played a key role in constructing a Philadelphia roster that took home the Super Bowl title at the end of the 2017 season. His promotions over the years have been met with success at every step of the way and being a GM seems to be next on the list of goals.

The Raiders are being thorough here, though. Las Vegas is also considering New England Patriots director of player personnel Dave Ziegler, Indianapolis Colts assistant GM Ed Dodds, Bears assistant director of player personnel Champ Kelly and Cincinnati Bengals scout Trey Brown for the position.

Las Vegas has also not named a head coach for the 2022 NFL season and that discussion should heat up once the GM job is locked up. For now, the Raiders will look to build off a season in which they made the NFL Playoffs for the first time in five years.
