Oakland Raiders Apply for Las Vegas Move

OAKLAND CA- NOVEMBER 06 Oakland Raiders fans display signs in support of the team staying in Oakland during their game against the Denver Broncos at Oakland Alameda County Coliseum

The Oakland Raiders could be the next NFL team to relocate after the league confirmed the franchise had applied to move to Las Vegas.

Under Davis' father, Hall of Fame owner Al Davis, the Raiders moved from Oakland to Los Angeles in 1982 then returned to the East Bay in 1995.

The news comes three months after the elaborate Mosul offensive against the Daesh stronghold was launched. Iraqi troops are now on the eastern bank of the Tigris River which splits the city to east and west.

The relocation will come to vote during the spring, and the Raiders need 24 or more owners to rule in favor of the move to become the Las Vegas Raiders.

Will The Owners Approve Moving To Las Vegas? Davis had until February 15 to file the relocation paperwork, and now must get 24 owners to approve the move. That vote will take place in March at the Annual League Meeting. Davis' hope of relocating the franchise is reportedly "making progress and gathering momentum" among owners and is "headed in the right direction", according to Rapoport. He's part of a 11-person panel appointed by Nevada governor Brian Sandoval to review the Raiders' $1.9 billion proposal for a domed stadium in Las Vegas.
