We already know that the NFL is set to vote on a possible Oakland Raiders relocation to Las Vegas this upcoming Monday. We also know that Raiders owner Mark Davis and Co. likely have the necessary votes for league approval of relocation (more on that here). Now that the Raiders uprooting from Northern California could prove inevitable here soon, the largest question will be when that might happen. Suggestions have been that the new venue in Vegas wouldn’t be ready until the 2020 season, meaning the Raiders would remain in Oakland until then. However, a stunning recent report from Joe Arrigo of Inside the Rebels and ESPN Las Vegas suggests otherwise. According to Arrigo, a deal is in the works that would enable to the Raiders to play at Sam Boyd Stadium, the home of UNLV’s football team, until the $1.9 billion state-of-the-art venue is ready for football.
