Raiders owner confirms talks with San Antonio after report team exploring move to Texas

Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis has confirmed he's met with San Antonio officials but declined to disclose whether he has any interest in relocating the franchise to Texas.

Davis says in a statement that "Former San Antonio mayor Henry Cisneros is a friend, and Henry suggested I take the opportunity to meet with some city officials while I was in town."

The San Antonio Express-News reported that Davis met on July 18 with Cisneros, then-mayor Julian Castro, the city manager and others to discuss potentially moving the Raiders from Oakland to San Antonio.

The newspaper reported that the Alamodome could serve as a temporary home until a new stadium is built.

The Raiders are in the final season of their lease in Oakland.
