Report: ‘Mystery billionaire’ in line to become part-Raiders owner

Mark Davis is reportedly lining up suitors to boost his team's relocation efforts.

According to Bleacher Report's Jason Cole, the Raiders owner is considering selling a stake of the Silver and Black to a “mystery billionaire.”

Ownership changes are commonplace in professional sports. But if this move goes through, it could oust a Davis from majority rule of one of America's storied teams.

The Raiders might not have a choice. Cole reports that money has been a sticking point for the team in its relocation efforts. 

Presumably, this unknown co-owner would add their sizable capital to the front office and help bankroll a new Raiders stadium — either in Oakland or in Los Angeles.
