We may have not just one, but two teams that will be relocating. The Oakland Raiders have officially submitted an application to move to Las Vegas.
The NFL released this statement:
Today, the Oakland Raiders submitted an application to relocate their franchise to Las Vegas, as is provided for under the NFL Policy and Procedures for Proposed Franchise Relocations.
The application will be reviewed in the coming weeks by league staff and the Stadium and Finance Committees. The relocation of a franchise requires the affirmative vote of three-quarters of the NFL clubs (24 of 32).
It is unclear whether they will receive the amount of votes necessary to complete the move, as the NFL has always been worried about the gambling ties between having a team in a state with legalized sports gambling.
