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. May 19 - 3:39 PM

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.

Raiders owner Mark Davis admits he may contact ESPN's Jon Gruden about the team's coaching vacancy.

Davis also optimistically added that Gruden might contact him. Davis insisted the team's opening is an attractive one, bragging about salary-cap space and "some players." When quizzed about Reggie McKenzie's performance as general manager, Davis was a little more coy. "We'll find out," Davis told reporter Tim Kawakami. "Gotta win." Finally, Davis said he expects to have more involvement in the team's coaching search than when it hired Dennis Allen. It's going to be an interesting few months in Oakland.

CBS' Jason La Canfora reports Raiders owner Mark Davis has "intensified his desire" to move to Los Angeles.

Per sources, Davis has been "spending oodles of time in the area." The report comes on the same day the San Antonio Express-News reported a Raiders move to Texas is a "long shot." What's clear is that Davis is tired of getting nowhere in talks with Oakland. Whether he's looking for leverage or serious about moving, Davis is upping the ante on the Bay Area.

San Antonio billionaire and former Vikings owner Red McCombs says he'd buy a stake in the Raiders if "that's what it would take to get them here."

McCombs believes Raiders owner Mark Davis' meeting with local officials "could (not) have gone better," and that San Antonio is more than just leverage in Davis' talks with Oakland. "It's a myth that San Antonio is a bargaining chip." The Raiders need San Antonio to believe they're sincere for it to be a truly-effective bargaining tactic. We still think San Antonio is ultimately just a means to an end in Davis' negotiations with Oakland.

A San Antonio official confirms the city has had relocation talks with the Raiders.

"I was asked to meet two weeks ago with the owner of the Oakland Raiders, Mark Davis, and members of his staff," were the words of city manager Sheryl Sculley. "Mr. Davis has expressed interest in a possible relocation of his NFL team to San Antonio and we are engaged in preliminary due diligence." Davis has admitted he was in San Antonio on the weekend of July 18, but claims it was to attend the induction of former Raider Cliff Branch into a "local Hall of Fame." At the very least, Davis is looking to leverage San Antonio against Oakland in the sides' stadium battle.

The San Antonio Express-News reports the Raiders are exploring the possibility of moving to San Antonio.

According to reporters Josh Baugh and Tom Orsborn, Raiders owner Mark Davis and his "two top lieutenants" recently met with San Antonio officials to discuss a potential move. Davis' visit is believed to have begun on July 18, and lasted 2-3 days. San Antonio has the Alamodome ready to go as a temporary venue, but it wouldn't be a better long-term solution than Oakland's O.co Coliseum. San Antonio is no stranger to being leveraged in stadium talks. It's quite possible Davis is simply trying to ramp up the heat on Oakland.

Speaking Tuesday, Raiders owner Mark Davis said stadium negotiations with the city of Oakland are in the "11th hour."

"It's always the 11th hour because we've been waiting a long time," Davis said. "If it doesn't happen, then we have to start looking at the other options. ... We want to stay in Oakland. We want to get something done." The Raiders have been angling for a new stadium for the entire 21st century, but have made astonishingly-little progress. The team's lease with O.co Coliseum runs through only the end of the season. Davis has left open the possibility of taking the Raiders back to Los Angeles.
