The mayor also added the city is “getting calls from outside the region offering to help with funding for stadium in Las Vegas.”
In other words, there’s a lot of money and a lot of interest in the idea of the Raiders moving to Las Vegas. If these interests help Davis put together a viable plan, the NFL doesn’t sound entirely inclined to stop the team from moving.
The Las Vegas Raiders are more and more becoming a viable reality.
The man who orchestrated the Rams’ relocation to Los Angeles sounds like he might be ready to help with another move.
After the Chargers, Rams and Raiders reached a relocation impasse back in January, it was Cowboys owner Jerry Jones who came up with the compromisethat eventually sent the Rams to L.A. and kept the Chargers and Raiders in their respective cities.
Although there’s still a strong possibility that the Chargers end up staying in San Diego, things are looking bleak for the Raiders in Oakland.
As a matter of fact, things are so bad in the Bay Area that Raiders owner Mark Davishas already pledged to leave for Las Vegas if that city approves funding for a new stadium.
As previously mentioned, Garrett did not say, according to ESPN, if Bryant would be fully ready to go for June minicamp. That’s the bad news.
Bryant is, however, working out at the Cowboys’ facility.

“I don’t think there’s any balance. It’s all about just being healthy,” Garrett said. “As soon as he’s healthy, he’ll get integrated back in. He’s doing everything we’re asking him to do with his rehab, and he’s making progress. There will be different thresholds he’ll have as we would with any injured player, ‘He’s doing this well, let’s take the next step. He’s doing this well, let’s take the next step.’ So we’ll do that with him, and hopefully over the course of the offseason and into training camp he’ll start playing some football with us.”
But, as we’ve said (too) many times here at CBS Sports, Fitzpatrick is also not a good quarterback, even if he threw a ton of touchdowns last year. At the very least, Smith and Petty are cheaper options.
