Red McCombs wants to help Oakland Raiders move to San Antonio

Former Minnesota Vikings owner Billy Joe “Red” McCombs opened eyes and dropped some jaws on Thursday when he told the San Antonio Express-News details of Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis’ meetings in San Antonio concerning a possible relocation. McCombs not only claimed that Davis wasn’t using San Antonio as a bargaining chip to get a new stadium, but that McCombs himself would buy a piece of the Raiders if it helped move the team to Texas.

Red McCombsMcCombs further claimed that he’s not sure if Davis actually would look for local investors if he decided to move the team, but said, “I told him if he wanted some, they wouldn’t be hard to get.”

Davis and two Raiders front office personnel met with several San Antonio officials in July about a possible move from Oakland to the Alamo City. McCombs told the paper that he believes there is a “definite possibility there may be a relocation.”

The Raiders’ current lease at Coliseum expires after the upcoming season and the franchise believes it needs a new stadium. The team has been linked with several cities, including Los Angeles and Portland, Oregon.

McCombs owned the Vikings from 1998 until 2004. He is the founder of the McCombs Automotive Group in San Antonio, was a co-founder of Clear Channel Communications and is currently the Chairman of Blackwater Worldwide. He also had past ownership stakes in the San Antonio Spurs and Denver Nuggets. His net worth is estimated at around $1.4 billion, so he could certainly help Davis move the team as an investor.

The 86-year-old Texas native is plugged in to the scene down in San Antonio and appears to be the biggest cheerleader for a team relocating to the city.

According to McCombs, San Antonio mayor Henry Cisneros apparently made a huge impression on Davis and he could be the key to San Antonio getting the Raiders. We’ll see how this plays out.
