Lincoln Kennedy stopped by “Mornings W/ Joe, Lo & Dibs” on Tuesday to offer up his perspective on the speculation linking Jon Gruden with a return to the silver and black.

“Look, from the rumors that have been circulating and from the valuable sources that have been reporting it, it looks like it’s close to being a done deal,” Kennedy said on 95.7 The Game.

“However, they still have to go through the natural progression. The Rooney Rule. They’ve got to go out and interview different people.”

“I don’t know how close to the deal is to getting done. I don’t know if it will, in fact, get done, but I do believe this with my heart: You don’t make a move of this magnitude without having something in store. You see what I’m saying? And you don’t do it this quickly after the final game of the season, if you don’t already have an inkling or a thought that you can get the other deal done.”
