The Houston Chronicle's John McClain reports the Raiders will host the Texans in a regular-season game in Mexico City next season.
The Raiders' stadium situation in Oakland is unsettled, so it makes sense to send one of their home games abroad. The Texans have consistently expressed their desire to play in Mexico, and the two teams are scheduled to play next season. It is a perfect fit. The last NFL game in Mexico was a 2005 regular-season clash between the Cardinals and 49ers played before a crowd of 103,467. Feb 4 - 11:55 AM

Raiders owner Mark Davis said the team is working on a one-year lease with the Oakland Coliseum.

Davis is actively pursuing options which would move the team in the future, but he said the "No. 1 plan" is to secure a deal in Oakland for 2016. Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf has said the sides need to secure a new lease before opening discussions on a "permanent, beautiful" stadium. The future is murky, but the Raiders will play at least one more season in Oakland.

In a memo sent to all 32 teams, the NFL said, "There is no prohibition under league rules on a team moving to any particular city."

The memo was in response to Raiders owner Mark Davis' reported desire to move his team to Las Vegas, a move the league would likely resist considering their stance on gambling. Davis met with Sands casino CEO Sheldon Adelson Friday regarding a $1 billion dome stadium Adelson plans to build in Vegas. After striking out in Los Angeles, Davis appears open to any and all options.

Raiders owner Mark Davis is in Las Vegas on Friday morning meeting with Sands casino chairman Sheldon Adelson about his support of an NFL stadium in "Sin City."

The Raiders-to-Las Vegas story has escalated rapidly over the past 24 hours, and Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, who's following relocation situations closely, reports the Raiders' potential move to Vegas is "very real." It won't happen this year, but Davis is intent on pursuing viable solutions for his franchise after it drew the shortest stick at the Owners' Meetings earlier this month. The O.co Coliseum is simply no longer functional. Adelson reportedly wants to build a $1 billion dome in Vegas, with or without a team.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports the possibility of the Raiders moving to Las Vegas is "very real," and that owner Mark Davis has been discussing the possibility with casino magnate Sheldon Adelson for "two years."

Concurrently, longtime Raiders reporter Bill Williamson reports Las Vegas is "confident" about attracting a team to town. Almost assuredly, lots of this is hot air, but it's something to be taken seriously since the Raiders' Oakland situation is beyond tenuous at this point. The major roadblock is the NFL's extreme aversion toward appearing to support gambling. Of all the league's 32 owners, Davis is probably near the bottom when it comes to the kind of clout that would be needed to persuade for such a move.

FOX Las Vegas reports Las Vegas casino magnate Sheldon Adelson is looking to spearhead a project to build a $1 billion, domed football stadium "with or without a team."

The stadium would be built on 42 acres of land recently purchased by the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. It would reportedly be a "public-private partnership," with the developers possibly requesting that "funds from hotel room taxes be diverted to the project." The news comes the same day that word leaked Raiders owner Mark Davis will be visiting the city to survey the site on Friday. The NFL's queasiness about gambling would be a major hurdle to relocating a team to the Nevada desert.

Top Raiders brass will reportedly visit Las Vegas on Friday to scout a potential stadium site.

The reports are all a bit secondhand, but are based on a memo from University of Nevada Las Vegas president Len Jessup. Owner Mark Davis said he would neither confirm nor deny the report. With stadium efforts going exactly nowhere in Oakland, and Davis dead set against a move to St. Louis, Vegas is a highly interesting wild card option. The town has long been desperate for a professional team of any kind, but faced resistance as the American hub of legalized gambling.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Raiders could move to San Diego for the 2017 or 2018 season.

Schefter's source called the potential move "very viable." The Raiders-to-San Diego possibility was first reported two weeks ago by ESPN's John Clayton following a private discussion with Raiders owner Mark Davis. The Chargers are fully expected to join the Rams in Inglewood (CA), creating room for the Raiders in San Diego. Even after missing out on Los Angeles, Davis seems dead set on leaving Oakland. The Raiders have also been linked to San Antonio, but San Diego is a more realistic relocation option.

Owner Mark Davis would not commit to the Raiders playing in Oakland next season.

"We came in third," said Davis. The league is planning to give the Raiders $100 million toward building a new stadium but Davis said that won't "fill the gap." As if things weren't already complicated enough, the Raiders don't have a stadium lease for next season. The Oakland Athletics, who have shared the O.co Coliseum with the Raiders for the last 20 years, said Tuesday's announcement will not change the team's "goal of securing a new baseball-only facility." If the Chargers decide to stay in San Diego, which is certainly a possibility, the Raiders could end up sharing a stadium with the Rams in Inglewood. The Raiders showed preliminary interest in relocating to San Antonio last year and could pursue that option if the team can't find a way to make it work in Oakland or Los Angeles.

The Raiders will have the option to share a stadium with the Rams in Inglewood, Cal. if the Chargers decide to stay in San Diego.

The league will give the Chargers and Raiders $100 million each in compensation if either decides to stay put but we're guessing the Chargers will eventually align with the Rams and share a stadium in Inglewood. The Chargers' preference was to split a venue with the Raiders in Carson but the owners preferred Stan Kroenke's Inglewood proposal. Assuming the Chargers and Rams come to an agreement, those teams will likely play in the Los Angeles Coliseum until the new stadium in Inglewood is ready. The $1.8 billion construction should be completed by 2019.
Jan 12 - 9:25 PM

The Raiders have withdrawn their request to relocate to Los Angeles.

NFL.com's Judy Battista reported earlier today that owners around the league were in "strong opposition" to the Raiders' relocation bid and now it appears they will stay put. The Raiders will obviously be compensated for bowing out of the L.A. sweepstakes, either with money to build a new stadium or as NFL Network's Ian Rapoport described it, "favorable consideration" for future relocation bids. While the Rams are officially headed to Los Angeles, we're still waiting on a decision from the Chargers, who have the option to either join the Rams in Inglewood or stay in San Diego. The proposed stadium that the Raiders and Chargers had once planned to share in Carson is now off the table.
Jan 12 - 8:34 PM

San Antonio Mayor Ivy Taylor told the San Antonio Express-News her city would be open to hosting the Raiders on a temporary basis.

The deal would likely allow the Raiders to play in the Alamodome for a short time while they work out stadium issues in Los Angeles. Reports say owner Mark Davis is "beyond frustrated" with Oakland's efforts to keep the Raiders in town, and NFL vice president Eric Grubman said Oakland has yet to make a "viable proposal." It is starting to feel like a foregone conclusion the Raiders are moving to LA. When and how they get there remain the questions.

Raiders owner Mark Davis admits he's uncertain about the team's future in Oakland.

"I don’t know," was Davis' response when asked if Oakland remains a viable home for its Raiders. According to the league, the city has presented "no viable proposal" to prevent the team from moving to Los Angeles. The Raiders' joint plan with the Chargers to move to L.A. has been gaining steam in recent weeks, though Rams owner Stan Kroenke's scheme to ride into Southern California is on solid footing, as well. The league is hellbent on returning to L.A., and appears poised to do so in 2016.

Raiders owner Mark Davis says he has no interest in moving to St. Louis, and that he'll "never" put the team up for sale.

There's been speculation that the league's game of stadium roulette in Los Angeles could end up sending the Raiders east, but Davis insists he's focused on California. Davis has never been connected to St. Louis in a meaningful fashion, and the only city he's spent time courting outside of the Golden State is San Antonio. For now, the Raiders appear unlikely to head for St. Louis should they lose out on their Oakland and L.A. stadium bids.

The Chargers and Raiders have teamed up to plan a $1.7 billion stadium in Carson, Ca. "in the event they can't get deals done" in their current cities by the end of 2015.

Spurred by Rams owner Stan Kroenke's stadium proposal in Inglewood, Ca., the Chargers and Raiders are turning the thermometer up to 100 on their current cities. "We are pursuing this stadium option in Carson for one straightforward reason: If we cannot find a permanent solution in our home markets, we have no alternative but to preserve other options to guarantee the future economic viability of our franchises," the teams said in a statement. A proposal will be publicly unveiled on Friday. The battle to bring football back to L.A. is fast turning into a street fight. Kroenke has a leg up in the planning, but could be held back by St. Louis' surprisingly robust response to his threat to move.
