Raiders to remain in Oakland at least one more year
The Raiders will remain the Oakland Raiders for at least one more season. The Raiders have reached a one-year lease extension to play at O.co Coliseum for the 2016 season. The agreement includes two years of team options for 2017 and 2018. It was characterized as a win-win situation by Raiders owner Mark Davis, who's flirted with Las Vegas and San Antonio. The Raiders announced they won't raise ticket prices, which makes sense. Real estate executive Larry MacNeil, who assisted the 49ers with their move into Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, to help the Raiders negotiate a deal for a new stadium in Oakland. “It gives us an opportunity to work on a permanent facility here in Oakland,” Davis said. “It gives us some certainty for this season as well as flexibility for the next two seasons. My heart is here in Oakland.” Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
