Oakland Raiders Press Conference: Mark Davis Indicates Team Will Consider LA, Other Options For Stadium

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis introduced new general manager Reggie McKenzie on Tuesday and the press conference covered a wide range of topics. The most topical information related to the decision to dismiss head coach Hue Jackson. Reggie McKenzie has been given full autonomy by Davis and he decided he wanted to start fresh at head coach and bring in "his guy."

After the press conference, Mark Davis chatted with the media and was asked about stadium issues. Davis left the door open for a variety of options as he acknowledged he is not leaving out any possibilities. He said he has not been in touch with the 49ers about their Santa Clara stadium, but the inference was that he would at least consider the possibility. More importantly, he specifically said Los Angeles was on the table as an option.

At this point, it sounds like there are some offers on the table, but nothing that has been to the Raiders liking. Given the need for a new stadium, I would imagine there will be plenty of news on the subject in the coming months.
