Raiders Looking to Relocate?

August 1, 2014
By Rick Horrow and Karla Swatek

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis met with San Antonio officials to discuss the possibility of relocating the team. Davis is upset with the Raiders’ stadium situation, and the team’s lease at Coliseum expires after the 2014 season. Any relocation must be approved by 24 of 32 owners.

One owner likely to reject that move is Jerry Jones, whose Dallas Cowboys have a strong following in the San Antonio area. Instead, Jones supports having an NFL-owned stadium in Los Angeles, and he believes the market could have a team within the next five years. Pro sports teams have long used San Antonio as leverage to get better stadium deals from their current cities. While the Raiders relocating to South Texas is unlikely, Southern California is a much more viable option. If the NFL is willing to fund a stadium, as Jones suggests, no team would be a better fit than the Raiders.
