Oakland Raiders' head coach Jon Gruden is getting praised for what he did for his Senior Bowl team tonight.

Gruden, who's coaching the North Team at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama this week, decided to buy his guys dinner this evening.

The meal: Buffalo wings.

"Bunch of happy dudes on the North roster tonight. Coach Gruden bought them 2,000 wings...." Eddie Paskal tweeted.

Here's what 2,000 wings looks like:

That's pretty cool.

We're unsure of what the exact flavors combination is, but we do know what Gruden's favorite flavor is.

"For those of you curious, Coach told me that his favorite wings are the original/medium ones."

Gruden has been having a good time coaching college players at the Senior Bowl tonight.

The Raiders' head coach has made an admission, too: He no longer thinks you need to be tall to play quarterback.

“I used to think that a lot, until I saw Drew Brees twice a year in Tampa, then I met Russell Wilson coming out of N.C. State, and now I’m watching this kid, Murray, coming out of Oklahoma, and I’m putting away all the prototypes I once had,” Gruden told reporters on Tuesday. “I used to have a prototype for hand size, height, arm strength, all that stuff.

“We’re looking for guys that can play and do a lot of different things. They come in all shapes and sizes nowadays.”

Could this mean the Raiders are interested in drafting Kyler Murray? We'll see...
