Report: San Diego officials contact NFL about possible Raiders relocation

Officials from San Diego's City Hall, including mayor Kevin Faulconer, contacted the NFL regarding a prospective relocation involving the Oakland Raiders, according to Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune.

Billionaire casino magnate Sheldon Adelson withdrew from the Raiders' plans to build a new stadium in Las Vegas on Monday. The Chargers relocated from San Diego to Los Angeles for the 2017 season, creating a void in the city's sporting scene.

Investment banking giant Goldman Sachs also withdrew their funding offer on Tuesday, potentially rendering the Raiders vulnerable.

Oakland submitted their bid for relocation to the NFL, and the league's owners are expected to vote in March. 24 of the NFL's 32 owners would need to approve any prospective relocation plan.

More to come.
