    Tony Dungy said Sunday night on NBC that he advised Michael Vick not to sign with the Oakland Raiders before he inked a deal with the Eagles.

    "I advised Michael Vick not to go there,” Dungy said. “I said, 'Mike, you might be able to start there but that is not a good place for you.'"

    It is unclear if the Raiders made a pitch to Vick. But if Dungy advised Vick against Oakland, there had to be some interest. Very intriguing.

    Dungy went on to say Al Davis has to give up control of the 1-4 Raiders for the team to turn around their fortunes.

    "It starts with the organization and Al Davis needs to cede this over to someone else,” Dungy said. “Every coach that has been there has felt that they have been hamstrung a little bit (by ownership)."

    Dungy he doesn’t see a top-flight head coach ever going to Oakland under the current situation.

    "I don't think they will unless you can get total autonomy and I don't think that's going to happen,” Dungy said.
