4. San Antonio – Alamodome

Next on the list is San Antonio, home of the Alamodome.

Prior to the Raiders’ decision to pack up and head for Las Vegas, San Antonio was considered one of their top potential landing spots. Although it clearly never panned out, it could still be an intriguing idea for the city to host the Raiders for a year while they wait for their own home to be built.

Here’s more from the Mercury News’ Jerry McDonald on why San Antonio shouldn’t be opposed to hosting the Raiders for a year:

"Still, the Alamodome would be a viable place for the Raiders to await their Las Vegas debut. Plus it would give the city a chance to show it could be “major league” for other sports other than the Spurs of the NBA."

And yet, according to NFL.com, Davis has an issue with the turf in the Astrodome, where the Raiders would be playing if they made the one-year move to San Antonio. Davis isn’t exactly the easiest man to sway, meaning he may have already made up his mind about a short stay in Texas.

San Antonio is on the table for now, but the fire has certainly died down a bit.
