Chiefs owner Hunt open-minded about Raiders relocation

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Chiefs owner Clark Hunt says he has an open mind about the Raiders moving to Las Vegas.

Hunt spoke to a handful of reporters before Kansas City played Jacksonville on Sunday, and told The Associated Press ''that probably five years ago I would have been skeptical that it could happen.''

Hunt said the league is doing research on the move, including what kind of fan support the Raiders would have in Las Vegas. And while he wants to reserve judgment until that report is delivered, Hunt did say that he expects Oakland to ask permission to move and the league to address it in the coming months.

The Raiders would need 24 of 32 owners to approve relocation.
