The Oakland Raiders are talking to former Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren about a prominent leadership role in the organization, reports NFL.com.

Holmgren, the former Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks coach, is being looked at to fill a spot on the football side.

"As a general policy, the Raiders don't comment on personnel matters, so the team isn't able to confirm or deny the report. If the organization has more to say in the future, I will let you know," the Raiders said in a statement to NFL.com. Still in the running is former Madison Square Garden president Scott O'Neil. If the Raiders do go through with creating an executive position on the business side, O'Neil or whomever filled the role would be working with CEO Amy Trask. The team's stadium issue -- its lease at the o.co Coliseum expires after next year -- is hovering over everything on the business side of the club.
