The former Raiders HC Jon Gruden has found a buyer to purchase his Las Vegas mansion and according to Total Pro Sports, Jon sold the mansion he and his wife Cindy Gruden bought for $4.3 million in 2021 for $7.5 million. Profit has been made on the mansion.
According to TPS:
Back in October 2021, he had just finished building his $4.3 million home that made him neighbors with QB Derek Carr. The two-story home, which has two lots totaling about 1.7 acres, sits on a lot that measures 0.77 acres. It has 6,850 square feet on the first floor, 1,834 square feet on the second floor and a garage measuring 1,938 square feet, according to county property records.
The home has five bedrooms, five full bathrooms and two half bathrooms.
Gruden and his wife, Cindy Gruden, who picked up the property for $4.3 million, sold it for $7.5 million and is already in pending sale status.
A lot of skeletons have been coming out of Gruden’s fictional closet.
Jon Gruden had a lot of strengths as a head coach.
He also had a few weaknesses.
One of those weaknesses was apparently his (or his coaching staff’s) inability to keep secrets.
According to Sports Illustrated’s Hondo Carpenter, teams didn’t consider trading ahead of the Raiders in the 2021 draft because they knew the Raiders were planning to take Alex Leatherwood.
“Last year, I heard that the Raiders ‘Loved,’ Alex Leatherwood,” Carpenter reported from Indianapolis this week.
“On The Morning Tailgate, my radio show on Raider Nation Radio, we had Butch Jones from Alabama on a few weeks before the NFL Draft to discuss Leatherwood and we said on the air we had learned of the Raiders’ interest in Leatherwood. Teams didn’t feel the need to trade up to get around the Raiders. People knew who they wanted.“
For what it’s worth, it has been said that the Henry Ruggs pick in 2020 wasn’t the best kept secret, either.
Another blunder from the 2020 draft was an opportunity the Raiders seemingly missed to gain draft picks with the pick used on Ruggs.
