Here's the Latest on Whether the Oakland Raiders Will Move to San Antonio

Update, 3:11 p.m.: The Los Angeles Times reports that now Rams and Chargers may have a deal to share a stadium in Los Angeles. Original post continues below. 

The NFL is meeting in Houston Tuesday to hear competing proposals from the St. Louis Rams, and from the Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers (who have teamed up in their proposal), about two — or three of the teams — relocating to Los Angeles.

And, like any time the Raiders make headlines for talking about leaving Oakland, pundits are saying that if it doesn't work out in the City of Angels, look for Raiders owner Mark Davis to talk about moving to San Antonio.

In an online video, Bleacher Report staffer Jason Cole said three sources have told him that Davis has bought a parcel of land between San Antonio and Austin where he can build a stadium if the Raiders don't move to LA or if Oakland doesn't give him what he wants, which is a new stadium.

However, according to the Contra Costa Times, talks between Davis and Oakland about a new stadium are not going well. 

If the owners vote against the Raiders and Chargers proposal at the NFL meeting, expect more talk about relocating to San Antonio, and about that interesting tidbit concerning land Davis allegedly owns between Austin and San Antonio.
