One of the teams mentioned as a possibility to fill the void in Los Angeles is one of the teams that helped create it some 15 years ago.
But with Ed Roski ready to begin wooing a potential tenant for a new Southern California venue as soon as February 2010, the Raiders can be removed from the list.
The team announced today a “tentative agreement” to extend the team’s lease at their current home through the 2013 season.
The deal must be approved by the league and the relevant public authorities.
Next challenge for the Raiders? To sell the place out on a consistent basis. Or, you know, once.
