The Los Angeles Daily News reports, "Closed out of Los Angeles and with nothing viable to turn back to in Oakland - a reality that remains to this day - there was uncertainty in the air for the Raiders". I feel like all fans should feel that way.
The NFL approved relocation of a third NFL franchise since January 2016, when the Rams were approved for the franchise's fourth move - from St. Louis to Los Angeles.
