Raiders Have No Interest In Moving To St. Louis

May 20, 2015 12:55 AM

Mark Davis has no interest in moving the Oakland Raiders to St. Louis.

The St. Louis Rams are considering moving to Los Angeles and there could be a stadium plan in place for a potential NFL team in that city.

Davis wishes to keep the Raiders in Oakland, though a significant gap in the funding of a new stadium in the Bay Area remains a looming problem.

 

The Raiders are also working on a potential stadium plan in Carson, California.

NFL Optimistic Team Will Move To L.A. By 2016

May 19, 2015 1:59 PM

The NFL has a growing confidence that a team will relocate to Los Angeles by 2016.

One source said they’re “confident there’ll be multiple options” and that’s no surprise, given Rams owner Stan Kroenke’s Hollywood Park project and the Carson project, which is being spearheaded by former 49ers executive Carmen Policy, as a potential home for the Raiders and Chargers.

The progress in St. Louis is described as “steady,” while Oakland has “moved backward since March.”

Jets Trade For Zac Stacy

May 2, 2015 6:49 PM

The St. Louis Rams have traded Zac Stacy to the New York Jets for a seventh round pick.

Stacy became expendable when the Rams drafted Todd Gurley 10th overall.

Stacy expressed his surprise to the Rams' selection of Gurley on Twitter, responding, "Yikes." He quickly deleted the tweet.

The Jets went into the draft looking for a running back, hoping to add competition to a growing backfield. Stacy will join Chris Ivory, Bilal Powell, Stevan Ridley and Daryl Richardson.

Zac Stacy Seeks Trade From Rams

May 1, 2015 12:32 PM

With the St. Louis Rams selecting Todd Gurley at running back with the 10th overall pick, the future of Zac Stacy remains uncertain.

ESPN reported that Stacy is seeking a trade following the Rams' selection of Gurley.

The Rams will meet with Stacy's representatives on Friday.

Stacy was one of the pleasant surprises of the 2013 season, rushing for 973 yards in just 13 games. But he fell behind both Tre Mason and Benny Cunningham on the depth chart last year, carrying only 76 times for 293 yards.

Mar 10, 2015 3:59 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles are close to agreement on a trade of Nick Foles to the St. Louis Rams for Sam Bradford.

The second round pick will be kept by the Eagles if Bradford isn't their starter.
