NFL executive vice president Eric Grubman said Tuesday that the city of Oakland has not made a “viable” stadium proposal to the Raiders
NFL owners met on Tuesday to discuss the Los Angeles stadium situation.
The owners of the Chargers and Raiders met with Los Angeles and Carson, Calif., officials last month to discuss possible stadium deals involving both teams, and in April the Carson City Council unanimously approved a $1.7 billion NFL stadium plan that would be shared by the Chargers and Raiders.
In June, Coliseum City emissary Floyd Kephart released a financing report that said the earliest the Raiders could play in a new stadium in Oakland would be 2020. The Raiders signed a one-year extension on their stadium lease at O.co Coliseum earlier this year.
Rams owner Stan Kroenke has moved forward with plans for a team in Los Angeles after buying 60 acres of land in Inglewood last year. His plans are to build a $1.86-billion, 80,000-seat NFL stadium, while a St. Louis task force seeks to build a new stadium in St. Louis to keep the team in town.
