Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis has not asked for an extension on the team's deal with O.co Coliseum and does not plan to ask for one. The Raiders' lease with the stadium expires at the end of the season.

Tafur reports that there hasn't been any progress made in talks between the Raiders and the city of Oakland in recent weeks, and that Davis is stepping up his pursuit of finding a new stadium elsewhere, with the NFL's support.
Los Angeles and San Antonio are two potential landing spots for the Raiders. Davis visited San Antonio last month to discuss the possibility of relocating the team there.
Davis told the Chronicle the meeting was "a serious conversation," but added "we continue to try to get something done in Oakland."
Oakland is currently participating in joint practices with the Cowboys in the city of Oxnard, which is located in Southern California.
Magic Johnson, who co-owns the Los Angeles Dodgers, said Tuesday that he believes L.A. will have an NFL team again within two years, and said the city and the NFL are "on board" with that team being the Raiders.
