Rich Gannon said Thursday he won't be calling Raiders managing general partner Al Davis again anytime soon.
Not after the response he received from the Raiders in regard to his revelation Wednesday that he phoned Davis a day earlier offering guidance to the team and quarterback JaMarcus Russell.
"It's amazing," Gannon said on Sirius NFL Radio of the terse response from the Raiders. "You try just to reach out to somebody and say something, that maybe you can help a young guy, and you get criticized for it."
Raiders senior executive John Herrera said Wednesday that neither Davis, Russell, coach Tom Cable nor the Raiders needs any help from Gannon and that "maybe it's Rich that needs the help."
To that, Gannon, an NFL analyst for CBS-TV, said: "I'm not looking for work. I have plenty of jobs that keep me busy. People think I'm looking for a job. I've been offered jobs to get into coaching and to get into management. I have no interest in doing it."
Gannon was selected to four straight Pro Bowls during his six-year stint with the Raiders and was the league's 2002 MVP in leading them to the Super Bowl.
"I just was really looking at a young guy that's really struggled and just thought that I could reach out to help him out," Gannon said of Russell.
Russell posted the league's worst completion percentage this season and also sported the lowest passer rating for a starting quarterback.
"Listen, I'm not all the king's horses and I'm not all the king's men," Gannon said. "I can't put Humpty Dumpty together again. I can't do that. But I was just looking to figure out a way to go out there and share with them some of the things that helped me as a player and prepare and get myself ready, not only for the season but for games each week."
Gannon has worked with numerous current NFL quarterbacks in recent seasons.
"I've done it with (Green Bay's) Aaron Rodgers and I've done it with quarterbacks in Tampa and Minnesota," Gannon said. "But, hey, trust me: I won't make that call (to Davis) again."
