Reports say that the Oakland Raiders are going to hire Denver Broncos defensive coordinator Dennis Allen as their new coach replacing Hue Jackson.

The only snag holding up the deal is an agreement on a contract.

The 39-year-old Allen will be the first Oakland head coach with a defensive background since Al Davis hired John Madden back in 1969.

The Raiders have not confirmed the hiring as of yet.

The Oakland Raiders have signed veteran wide receiver T.J. Houshmandzadeh to a contract on Tuesday, reuniting him with his former quarterback Carson Palmer.

The two were teammates in Cincinnati for six years and both were very successful in their careers in the NFL when they were together.

Houshmandzadeh averaged 89 pass receptions per year in a five-year period with the Bengals.

The wide receiver is very familiar with Raiders head coach Hue Jackson, who was the receivers coach with Cincinnati for three years while Palmer and Houshmandzadeh were playing there.

Houshmandzadeh has had an up-and-down career since leaving the Bengals, playing for Seattle and Baltimore and trying to make New England and San Francisco.

The 34-year-old former star at Oregon State University recently had been working out in Southern California catching football’s from Palmer while both were out of work.

Bengals finally unload unhappy Palmer; Raiders offer too good to pass on

After walking out on the Cincinnati Bengals when the 2010 season ended, Carson Palmer knew after demanding a trade or not play and retire demand that he could never walk back into the locker room and face his teammates. Furthermore, he had resigned himself to the fact that the team would never trade him.

Bengals owner Mike Brown said that he would deal with Palmer in his timetable and not the player and his agent’s. Well, Brown waited 10 months, the lockout, preseason and the first six games of the season to finally dump Palmer which is good for everybody.

Palmer received the message on Tuesday morning that he had been traded to the Oakland Raiders to replace the injured Jason Campbell.

The Raiders gave the Bengals in return, a 2012 first-round pick and a conditional second-rounder in 2012 that can become another first if Oakland makes it to the AFC title game in either of the next two years.

Head coach Hue Jackson knows Palmer well, having coached him at USC and with the Bengals while as an assistant coach.

The Raiders, just like the Bengals are 4-2, became quite desperate for a quarterback after Campbell broke his collarbone in Sunday’s win over the Cleveland Browns. Campbell had surgery on Monday and will miss at least six weeks, which left the Raiders with erratic Kyle Boller and the unproven Terrelle Pryor.

The Raiders immediately re-worked Palmer’s contract, giving him a $2.5 million guaranteed deal for the rest of the season, $12.5 million with $5 million guaranteed in 2012, $13 million in 2013 and $15 million in 2014.

Mike Brown and the Bengals organization had a tough stance towards trading Palmer who wanted out of the losing organization which has had two winning season in the past 20 years. They did not want to reward Palmer for holding out and for demanding his way.

But the Bengals management knew that the Raiders offer was too good to pass on; Cincinnati fans were upset that Palmer walked out and quit and there were some players who did not want to be identified during the preseason, did not want Palmer to return. Also, the big picture is that rookie quarterback Andy Dalton has played well with the young offensive receivers. So the trade was a no-brainer.

In the end, Palmer gets to play in his homestate of California and the Bengals get two draft choices that can help them build a consistent winner.
