"The Raiders and ourselves have agreed to sit down and have discussions about a lease extension. We will talk to the press once we have something to talk about."
Such a deal might never come to pass. Raiders owner Mark Davis is reportedly interested in moving his team to San Diego or San Antonio; either city could lure Davis with perks and new stadium promises.
Then again, this announcement could buy crucial time. And in that span, city officials could re-work a favorable offer to keep the Raiders in Oakland once and for all.
