Just under an hour ago, MySanAntonio.com dropped a bombshell of a report surrounding Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis meeting with San Antonio City officials surrounding a potential relocation should Davis be unable to get a new stadium deal done in the Bay Area.
The report stated that Davis and two top lieutenants met recently with several San Antonio officials to discuss the potential of moving his NFL team from the Bay Area.
MySanAntonio reported that on July 18, Davis met with the officials, including Henry Cisneros, then-Mayor Julián Castro, City Manager Sheryl Sculley, Mario Hernandez of the San Antonio Economic Development Foundation, and both Richard Perez and David McGee, the president and chairman of the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce, respectively to discuss the topic of relocating the historic Californian franchise to Texas.
CSNBayArea’s Scott Bair contacted Mark Davis this afternoon by phone, and the Raiders owner has declined to comment on a possible move of the team to San Antonio in light of the report that he met with officials of the City of San Antonio during the month of July prior to the Raiders 2014 Training Camp in Napa.
I reached Raiders owner Mark Davis by phone. He declined comment on a report regarding possible move to San Antonio.
