Raiders Pay $25,000 To Survey San Antonio Residents About Possible Move

The Oakland Raiders have flirted with the city of San Antonio over the past year as negotiations with Oakland have stalled, but things have apparently gotten much more serious over the past week.

The Raiders paid for half of a $50,000 survey sent out to thousands of San Antonio residents, asking if they would buy $1,500 season tickets, luxury boxes and more. The survey, first reported by San Antonio Newsradio 1200 WOAI's Michael Board, aims to gauge the willingness of San Antonio residents to financially support a new NFL team in the area.

San Antonio Facilities Director Michael Sawaya told WOAI that the survey was Oakland's "biggest step yet" towards a potential relocation to Texas. Team owner Mark Davis visited San Antonio back in July, but attempted to play down the visit when questioned.
