On some level, Todd Downing is vaguely familiar that a certain vote will determine the future home of the franchise for which he works.

But as a first-time offensive coordinator for the Raiders, Downing lives in the here and now. Las Vegas, if owner Mark Davis gets his way is at least two years away.

“I mean this sincerely,” Downing said at the Stanford pro day Thursday. “It’s the furthest thing from my mind. I’ve got so much else going on that I’m excited to sink my teeth into.”

It was at least a mild surprise when Downing was elevated after Bill Musgrave’s contract expired given the Raiders’ status as the No. 6 offense in the NFL.

And speculation entering free agency the Raiders would concentrate on defense has given way to another mild surprise. The Raiders added four players to their offense before landing their first defensive player in linebacker Jelani Jenkins.
