Tim Brown: Best move for Raiders may be San Antonio

BY foxsports • December 13, 2014

The future of the Raiders in Oakland is still up in the air, but one possibility is a move to the home state of former franchise great Tim Brown.

While the nine-time Pro Bowl wide receiver believes the Raiders should stay in the Bay Area, he knows that might not happen with the team in the final year of their lease at the Oakland Coliseum.

"They're trying to work out a deal to stay there, but it's tough because the city of Oakland doesn't have the funds to get it done and it seems like to everybody that really L.A. is trying to woo any team," Brown told NBC's Pro Football Talk on Friday

A group of San Antonio officials met with Raiders owner Mark Davis last month in hopes of bringing the team to the Alamo City.

"I'll tell you, the wild card here, I believe, is San Antonio," Brown said. "I know people don't want to hear that, but from what I'm hearing the package that San Antonio put on the table was far better than any package they could have ever imagined. So financially the best thing for the team may be to go to San Antonio.

"I know that would hurt a lot of Raiders fans in California but at the same time, this team has to find a home and if Oakland and L.A. can't get it done, then maybe San Antonio's the place."
