NFL Rumors: Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis has thought about move back to Los Angeles


It’s long been speculated that the Oakland Raiders may eventually move back to Los Angeles, no matter how much the move might not be embraced by some in both the Los Anegeles and Oakland areas. The ongoing Oakland stadium issues aren’t helping matter much either, that’s why at the NFL owners meeting on Sunday, team owner Mark Davis openly came out and confirmed that he has thought about making the move.

“We’re not done in Oakland. We’re trying really hard, and we’ll see how that goes,” Davis said Sunday at the outset of the NFL Annual Meeting, via CSNBayArea.com. “But Los Angeles is something that I’ve definitely thought about and haven’t pursued. There are other places as well. Until we can find out if Oakland is real, then I’m still staying in Oakland. If we can get something done in Oakland, I will stay in Oakland.”

Then, to throw a little more fuel on the Oakland fire, he let it be known that he believes he and his team would be rather welcome if the team was moved south.

“I know that we would be well embraced down there,” Davis said. “There’s no question about that.”

Davis is pushing harder and harder recently for a new stadium, and those efforts have been amped up this year. If he doesn’t get it though, it might be time for the move.
