Oakland gets temporary reprieve in effort to keep Raiders

BY foxsports • January 12, 2016

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) Oakland was given another shot to keep the Raiders.

The NFL approved a compromise measure Tuesday that allows the St. Louis Rams to move back to the Los Angeles area and gives the San Diego Chargers the option to join them in Inglewood.

The Raiders had hoped to move to Carson with the Chargers, but were left out of the high-stakes game of musical chairs. But the team could get the chance to join the Rams at their stadium in 2017 if the Chargers remain in San Diego.

But for now, the Raiders can negotiate with Oakland on building a new stadium or look to other cities such as San Antonio, or possibly San Diego or St. Louis for a new home.
