"Yeah, Los Angeles is a possibility," the new Raiders owner said Wednesday, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. "Wherever's a possibility. We need a stadium."

The Raiders have apparently discussed sharing a new stadium with fellow Bay Area team San Francisco, but their priority is remainig in Oakland and building a new stadium on their current spot. However, the allure of a stadium rumored for downtown L.A. may be the more attractive option with time as a factor.

"The timetable is yesterday," said Davis. "So that's where it is. We've got to get a stadium. We've got to get that done."

The Raiders played in Los Angeles from 1982 to 1994, where they made five playoff appearances, including two division titles.
