as the strength and conditioning coach of the Oakland Raiders before the team elected to release him from his duties last week.According to Matt Kawahara of the Nick Nelson Jersey , Raiders head coach Jon Gruden wouldn’t elaborate on the reasons for Shaw’s firing outside of calling the issue a “personal matter.”鈥淭hat鈥檚 a personal matter,鈥?Gruden said. 鈥淚鈥檒l just leave it at that. Tom鈥檚 a good friend, really good at what he does. It鈥檚 a personal matter and unfortunately, we鈥檙e going to have to go in a different direction, and that鈥檚 something we鈥檙e going to have to do when the season鈥檚 over.鈥漈he Raiders currently have 19 players on either injured reserve or physically unable to perform lists. However, that’s unlikely to be the only reason to dismiss a strength coach after one season, particularly one Gruden has a friendship and history with. Shaw had worked with the New Orelans Saints and New England Patriots in the past and was running a training center in Orlando, Fla. before joining the Raiders.Gruden鈥檚 son, Deuce, is one of four assistants along with D鈥橝nthony Batiste, Kelsey Martinez and Rick Slate.Mike Nugent has hip injury, Raiders look to sign new kicker this week Undrafted rookie Eddy Pineiro was supposed to be the team’s kicker this season. They brought in Mike Nugent in training camp to replace left-footed kicker Giorgio Tavecchio who was the team’s kicker last year. But it was clearly Pineiro’s job to lose. Then Pineiro was lost to an injury and the job was Nugent’s.Now Nugent is injured. The veteran kicker suffered a hip injury in the team’s game in Miami, and Jon Gruden is concerned he may not be able to go against the Browns this week. Unlike some positions, there is no backup kicker Johnny Townsend Jersey , so when the kicker can’t go, a replacement must be added.“We’ll be trying out numerous people, trying to find the best available kicker possible,” Gruden said Monday. “Rich Bisaccia, and I know Reggie McKenzie, are up there working getting some flights organized right now.”For those wondering, no Pineiro is not an option. He was placed on injured reserve and is out for the season. In order to even be eligible to return after eight games, Pineiro would have had to be on the initial roster on the final cutdown to 53.Tavecchio is certainly an option, though he was released because the team didn’t want Johnny Townsend to have to keep switching sides as the holder.There are a lot of experiences kickers out there. Dan Bailey was the top free agent out there until last week when he signed with the Vikings. The short list of remaining possibilities include Cairo Santos, Dan Carpenter, Nick Novak, and Kai Forbath.Follow @LeviDamien
