In 2014, Mark Davis the new Raiders owner traveled to San Antonio, Texas to scout the area for a potential move. Well now that the Raiders are in limbo with their current situation, a billionaire is stepping in to offer assistance, but he wants the team in Texas.
In an interview with ESPN San Antonio, Red McCombs, an 88-year-old San Antonio billionaire and former owner the Minnesota Vikings stated that he talked with Raiders owner Mark Davis about moving the team to San Antonio immediately after the team withdrew it’s application to move to Los Angeles.
According to Bleacher Report, Davis already owns land in San Antonio and McCombs insisted in the radio interview there are “several locations that would work” to build a stadium in the San Antonio area. McCombs also said he has 12 corporate sponsors ready to welcome the Raiders. The billionaire also said he would be open in buying the Raiders from Davis if need be.
“We would be happy to be investors if that what he wants,” he said. “We have investors lined up if that what he wants. If he wants to keep it all to himself, that’s OK too.”
