Raiders closing in on one-year Coliseum extension

Oakland Raiders Raiders owner Mark Davis said he expects to sign a one-year extension with the Coliseum for 2015.

What's next for 2016 remains up in the air?

"We are trying to get something done here, so we're signing another one-year extension," Davis said. "Plus our fans proved to us that we should be here. We want to be here."

The Coliseum is outdated. It opened in 1966. Its last renovation was in 1995 and it shares the facility with the Oakland A's.

Davis met with the city of San Antonio and returning to Los Angeles is always a possibility.

His preference is to stay in Oakland.

"We're not using any other place, city or whatever, as leverage," Davis said. "It's not that way. It's known that no matter what we do here, it will not be as valuable or economically as great for the Raiders as if we went somewhere else. That's known. But we still want to be here. I want to get something permanent for this franchise."
