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.

Antonio Brown could shift balance of power away from 49ers, says former NFL executive

There is a whole lot of speculation right now that Antonio Brown might rejoin quarterback Tom Brady in Tampa Bay. The veteran wide receiver played one game last year with Brady in New England and even hauled in a touchdown for the Patriots. Of course, that story has already been disputed. Should Brown land with an NFC team like the Buccaneers, though, some believe that it could be enough to shift the balance of power within the conference. One former NFL executive turned analyst, Michael Lombardi, thinks that should Brown land with a team in the NFC West, like the Seattle Seahawks, it would shift the balance of power within the division away from the San Francisco

Barrows: 'Someone in the know' feels George Kittle, 49ers could land on a contract worth $13 million a year

There has been a lot of speculation surrounding the long-term contract for San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle. Some even feel a new deal could fetch the All-Pro an annual salary up to $20 million. Naturally, when one person starts talking about those kinds of numbers, everyone does. That would shatter the ceiling of the tight end market. Right now, the top salaries for the position group remain under $11 million. To nearly double that when next year's salary cap situation remains uncertain might not be in the San Francisco 49ers' best interests, and at least one person doesn't believe it will come to that. "I recently spoke with someone
