Ex-Vikings owner Red McCombs looking to buy another NFL team?

Posted by: Michael Rand Updated August 7th at 4:49pm 270384641

mccombsmossIt wouldn’t be the NFL if Red McCombs wasn’t involved with California and the possible leveraging of a threat to move!

McCombs met with Raiders owner Mark Davis last month and spoke to the San Antonio Express-News about the meeting on Wednesday:

In his first public comments after his 90-minute meeting with Davis, McCombs told the San Antonio Express-News his family would be interested in buying into the Raiders “if that’s what it would take to get them here.”

McCombs, though, was quick to add he isn’t sure whether Davis would want local investors. “But I told him if he wanted some, they wouldn’t be hard to get,” said McCombs, who owned the Minnesota Vikings from 1998 through the 2004 season.

With the Raiders’ lease in Oakland set to expire after the 2014 season and stadium talks stalled in the Bay Area, Davis’ visit to San Antonio sparked speculation he is using the city to gain leverage back home. But McCombs said he believes there is a “definite possibility there may be a relocation” and that “it’s a myth that San Antonio is a bargaining chip.”
