Raiders GM adds experienced executive to front office

The Raiders are expected to add Chargers director of player personnel JoJo Wooden to their front office. Wooden has a long history with new Raiders general manager Tom Telesco and is expected to hold a high-level position with the team.

Wooden was the one who replaced Telesco on an interim basis when the latter was fired by the Chargers in December.

Wooden, 54, played one season in the NFL with the Cardinals and has been an NFL executive since 1997. He worked in pro scouting and personnel with the New York Jets from 1997 to 2012. Telesco hired Wooden as his director of pro personnel when he took over the Chargers in 2013.
