  • OAKLAND, Calif. — Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis confirmed a published report of a visit with San Antonio officials, but the extent of his interest in relocating his franchise to Texas is not known.
    Davis, reached by phone Tuesday, said he was in San Antonio with close friend and former Raider Cliff Branch, who was being inducted into a local hall of fame.
    According to a report in the San Antonio Express-News, Davis met with Cisneros, then-mayor Julian Castro, City Manager Sheryl Sculley and the president of the San Antonio Chamber of Commerce.
    "I was asked to meet two weeks ago with the owner of the Oakland Raiders, Mark Davis, and members of his staff," said Sculley. "Mr. Davis has expressed interest in a possible relocation of his NFL team to San Antonio and we are engaged in preliminary due diligence. The agenda for this visit included a tour of the Alamodome and meetings with local business leaders."
    The Alamodome could serve as a temporary home until a new stadium is built.
