Former Chargers general manager Tom Telesco may not be out of work for long.

Per NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Telesco has been requested to interview for the general manager vacancy for the Raider, a team he spent over a decade competing against as a member of the Bolts.

The Raiders have will be in the market for a number of top names, just like the rest of the teams looking to fill holes in their front office. Current interim general manager Champ Kelly will be considered for the notable job he did to end the season but the franchise has also already sent requests to interview 49ers assistant general manager Adam Peters and Colts assistant general manager Ed Dodds.

If Telesco somehow does land the job, it will be one weird sight to see him wearing the silver and black as a member of a divisional rival.

As Chargers fans, could this actually be a good thing? Should we root for this? Let me know all of your thoughts below!
