The Oakland Raiders signed an agreement with Clark County in Las Vegas that they have a letter of intent to move the franchise from Oakland at the end of the 2018 season and the Raiders will play their first season in Vegas in August 2019 in a brand new dome stadium on the Vegas strip. This is just one hurdle to get the team in position to get the team to come to Vegas and build the new stadium.

The question still remains will 22 of the 32 owners will vote to approve such a move for the Raiders and will that take place. It sounds like it’s going to happen, it’s a sad day in Oakland, nothing is official. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the owners felt like that was probably the best move. Once the vote gets approved by the owners that’s the time to panic.
