When NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was asked this week about the chances of a team relocating to Las Vegas, Goodell didn't dismiss the idea, but he did say he wanted to see a "hard proposal" first.

Thanks to the Las Vegas Sands casino group, that proposal could be coming sooner than expected.

The casino giant went in front of the Southern Nevada Tourism Infrastructure Committee on Thursday night and presented the initial plans for a $1.3 billion stadium in Vegas that would sit less than a mile from the strip.

Although the 65,000-seat stadium would serve as a home to UNLV football, the company's ultimate plan would be to bring in an NFL team, according to Sands President and Chief Operating Officer Rob Goldstein.
