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.

Silver: Some believe 49ers could draft Justin Fields, taking Shanahan's offense to 'another dimension'

As is the case with many analysts, NFL Network's Marc Ross sees Justin Fields of Ohio State as the better prospect when compared to Mac Jones of Alabama. The former Buckeye will hold a second pro day next week, but Ross feels the quarterback has already shown everything he needs to show to NFL teams. "If teams, right now, are still trying to figure out if Justin Fields is the guy, then they've already missed the evaluation, or he's not their guy," Ross told Andrew Siciliano, Bucky Brooks, and Mike Silver on NFL Network. Ross notes that with teams likely already having all of the information they need on the quarterback prospects, it is admirable that Fields is holding another pro day when he has little to gain. "This is just him being a competitor

Justin Fields. Mac Jones. Trey Lance. It seems like we have had an insurmountable number of rumors when it comes to these three quarterback prospects, mainly being linked to the San Francisco 49ers. However, it seems as if all those unknowns may be finally leading to something. On Saturday, Michael Lombardi, an NFL writer for the Athletic, came onto The Wrap with Patrick Meagher, and set the narrative straight: the 49ers are not going to draft Justin Fields. With all the speculation surrounding the three intriguing quarterback prospects, news like this is alarming. While I personally would select Fields at number three, eliminating him from the picture clears up the story for the 49ers. Almost all of the rumors surrounding the third pick

The San Francisco 49ers are among several teams that have held pre-draft virtual meetings with former Michigan running back Chris Evans. The news was brought to us by Danish journalist Søren Hansen, who was the first to report the date of Justin Fields' second pro day. "Michigan's RB Chris Evans has had zoom calls with the 49ers, Bengals, Patriots, Vikings, Giants and Chiefs," reads a translated tweet by Hansen. "Did not get much playing time in college and sat out in 2019, but is a great back and a good receiver who had a strong Pro Day. Interesting name for the bottom of the third day of the draft." Evans (5-11, 211) carried the football 16 times for just 73 yards



Report: Trey Lance started working with John Beck at 49ers' request

Private coach John Beck, a former NFL quarterback who played for then-offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan in Washington, worked with quarterback Justin Fields of Ohio State this offseason. Beck remains close with Shanahan, and has been working with quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State in recent weeks. That is no coincidence. Fields and Lance are among the most likely prospects to be selected No. 3 overall by the San Francisco 49ers. ESPN's Dan Graziano reports that Lance has been working with Beck at the Niners' request. San Francisco provided Beck with a list of drills it wanted to see from Lance, which means it was heavily involved in the planning of Monday's
