Mark Davis said Thursday that he wants to move the Raiders to Las Vegas and pledged $500 million toward the building of a proposed $1.4 billion domed stadium in the city.
Davis didn't promise to move the Raiders to Las Vegas, but his pledge to contribute $500 million to a potential stadium is a significant development.
The owner made the comments during a meeting of the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee at UNLV.
The NFL has long shunned Las Vegas, refusing its TV ads and telling players not to make appearances at casinos. However, Davis said he believes owners will approve the move if the stadium is built.
"If we give them an offer they can't refuse, and that's what we're talking about now, I don't see a problem," Davis said.
