The Oakland Raiders’ ongoing discussions with the city of Las Vegas about a possible move will not be among the topics officially discussed at the NFL owners meetings in Charlotte, reports the MMQB’s Peter King.
Although relocation to Las Vegas will not be discussed on the floor, King expects that it will be a major topic in unofficial conversations.
The idea of an NFL team playing in Las Vegas has gained traction in recent weeks, with Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones coming out in favor of the possibility.
Las Vegas mayor Carolyn Goodman has also expressed confidence in the Raiders ability to relocate to the city, saying that she thinks the team will move if “Nevada handles this properly.”
Raiders owner Mark Davis has already pledged to give $500 million towards building a new stadium in Las Vegas.
Owners and representatives from all 32 teams will meet Tuesday at the Ballantyne Hotel in Charlotte.
