Raiders owners nixes St. Louis as potential future home for team
BOCA RATON, FL (KTVI)- The owner of the Oakland Raiders isn’t sure where his team will end up, but he’s sure it isn’t St. Louis. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that Raiders owner Mark Davis sees no progress on a new stadium in Oakland. He lists Las Vegas and San Antonio as potential future homes.
The team could join the Rams at Stan Kroenke’s Inglewood project, but Dean Spanos’ Chargers have first dibs on that option through 2016. The Raiders could step into the San Diego market if the Chargers do decide to head to L.A.
But when asked about moving to St. Louis, the Post Dispatch reports Davis said that answer is a firm “No.”
At the NFL owners meetings Monday, Davis said “I just don’t feel it in my heart, that that’s where the Raiders are gonna be. Wherever we put this stadium, it’s gonna be for the rest of my life. And I just want it to be the right place.”
