Report: Raiders could temporarily share Levi’s Stadium with 49ers

Mar 27, 2017 at 10:16 AM--


The NFL meetings are currently taking place and a vote on the future of the Oakland Raiders is expected. The decision is likely to allow the Bay Area neighbor of the San Francisco 49ers to relocate from Oakland to Las Vegas, Nevada. That would leave the 49ers as the only NFL team in the Bay Area.

If the vote were to go in favor of the Raiders, they would likely have to remain in the Bay Area until their new stadium in Las Vegas is complete. Where would the Raiders play in the meantime? They still have a year on their lease at the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum with an option for 2018. However, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network is reporting that one potential temporary home for the Raiders could be Levi's Stadium, which is home of the 49ers. The two teams could potentially share the stadium until the Raiders are ready to move to Las Vegas.

"One option, I'm told, is Levi's Stadium," Rapoport said Monday on NFL Network. "For 2019 – certainly is an option. For 2018 – believed to be an option as well. It's not something, from my understanding, that the Niners would oppose. They've been very vocal about welcoming the Raiders if that is necessary. So that would be a potential option for the Raiders if Las Vegas is not ready to actually join forces with the 49ers for a year or two."

The Raiders need 24 of the 32 NFL owner votes to win approval for the move to Las Vegas.

Jimmy Garoppolo: Familiarity could sway me to return to 49ers

By David Bonilla
Dec 2

It seems unlikely that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would opt to return to the San Francisco 49ers in 2023. Of course, no one predicted that he would be on the roster come Week 1 of this season, either. Even Garoppolo fully anticipated being elsewhere. There was some interest from other teams throughout training camp, but nothing came to fruition. That left Garoppolo and the 49ers kind of stuck with one another. So the two agreed to extend the marriage for one more season. San Francisco restructured Garoppolo's remaining year on his contract, allowing the quarterback to return as Trey Lance's backup. It worked out for both sides. Garoppolo is having a solid season, increasing his value for the upcoming offseason—an offseason in which the 49ers can't utilize



Tactical advantage could be out the window between 49ers' Kyle Shanahan and Dolphins' Mike McDaniel

By Rohan Chakravarthi

The San Francisco 49ers are set to host the Miami Dolphins in a reunion between head coach Kyle Shanahan and his protégé Mike McDaniel. Shanahan has known McDaniel for 17 years. The two started working together with the Houston Texans in 2006 and were together for all but two years until the Dolphins hired the former 49ers offensive coordinator in February to be their head coach. Is Sunday's game more interesting for Shanahan, knowing that he is going against his former assistant? "Not really because I think we know their offense very well," Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area. "The defense knows their offense very well. It's very similar to ours. They know our defense very well. That's all Mike's gone against, so there's no secrets



Jerry Rice on 49ers QB Brock Purdy: "You could tell he was in complete control"

By David Bonilla

Brock Purdy, the last overall pick in this year's draft, was anything but irrelevant during Sunday's 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins. The rookie quarterback stepped in for Jimmy Garoppolo, who went down early with a season-ending foot injury. The game and the situation weren't too big for Purdy. The rookie passer was cool under pressure, doing just enough to ensure his Niners emerged with their fifth consecutive victory. "Mr. Irrelevant, man, I'm looking at this guy, very poised," NFL legend Jerry Rice said Monday morning on 95.7 The Game. "You could tell he was in complete control. And the players, they actually had confidence in him, so he did a fantastic job." RELATED:



49ers-Dolphins Injury Report: Christian McCaffrey, Charles Omenihu don't practice; Deebo Samuel, Arik Armstead limited

The San Francisco 49ers are preparing for their Week 13 contest against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. Christian McCaffrey didn't practice. The running back worked through some knee irritation on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints. Head coach Kyle Shanahan wasn't sure if the situation would keep McCaffrey from playing this weekend. "It's keeping him from [practicing] today, so I hope not," Shanahan told reporters. Defensive end Charles Omenihu is also dealing with a knee issue and did not practice. Another defensive lineman, Arik Armstead, was a limited participant. Armstead has not played since Week 4 and returned to the practice field last Friday. He did not play against the Saints,
