Oakland Raiders Eyeing Move To Texas

Al Davis, the late owner of the Oakland Raiders, was known for breaking the mold and taking big risks. His son and current Raiders owner, Mark Davis, is proving the apple didn’t fall too far from the tree.

Davis has been contemplating the future of his NFL franchise for a while and some reports suggest a move to the Lone Star State may be in the works.

Houston and Dallas already have NFL franchises in the Texans and Cowboys, respectively. The University of Texas provides Austin with enough high-level football. The easy choice for a Texas move would be San Antonio.

San Antonio has proven that it has the fan base necessary to support a major franchise.

While the Raiders have other options in their moving decision, the biggest opposition to a San Antonio move may come from the city’s championship NBA team.

What do you think? Do you think the Oakland Raiders moving to San Antonio would be a good fit? Can San Antonio support an NFL team and the Spurs?
