Would The Raiders Really Be Interested In Dom Capers?

NFL.com news: Packers DC Capers on Raiders' list of candidates. I've been a little slow to write about the rumor of Green Bay Packers defensive coordinator Dom Capers to the Raiders. While I believe they're truly interested in Packers assistant head coach Winston Moss, I don't think the same applies to Capers.

That's not a criticism of Capers, but I don't think his career path fits with Reggie McKenzie's plans. During his press conference, he made sure to convey that his focus is long-term. He's not looking for a one-year fix. Capers is a detailed professional who's been hired twice before as a head coach, and he'd be an improvement over some of their recent head coaches. But he's also turning 62 before the start of next season, and he'd only be a short-term solution. McKenzie should want to find someone who he sees as his head coach for the next five to ten years.

Anything else we hear about this between now and the end of the season will just be speculation. Winston Moss said he's not talking about it right now, and I'm sure Capers feels the same way.
