STAY BY THE BAY: In Oakland, Steve Corkran reports Raiders Owner Mark Davis following a meeting last night said that Dennis Allen "is going to remain" as the team's coach for '14. Davis said, "It's been that way ever since he signed a four-year contract to be the head coach." When asked if there was any uncertainty moving forward, Davis said, "No. There hasn't been a question about it, either." Davis added that Allen's job "ultimately rests" with GM Reggie McKenzie (OAKLAND TRIBUNE, 1/8). Allen is "coming off back-to-back 4-12 seasons his first two years," but McKenzie remains "firmly in his corner" (SFGATE.com, 1/7).
PAY TO WIN: ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas wrote there is an "old myth" about how the Glazer family, which owns the Buccaneers, "is cheap." The Bucs are still on the hook for recently fired Greg Schiano's contract, which averaged $3M a year, but they "didn't want to put up with losing anymore." That is why the Glazers "went out and paid even more money to replace Schiano with Lovie Smith," giving him a deal worth around $22M for a reported four years. The Glazers "might not be perfect owners," but "don't call them cheap" (ESPN.com, 1/7).
