Packers

Raiders

Raiders owner Mark Davis displayed his disappointment with Tuesday’s outcome where the Rams will move to Los Angeles, while his team canceled their partnership with the Chargers in a possible move to Carson, Calif.

This is not a win for the Raiders,” said Davis, via Scott Bair of CSN Bay Area. “We’re looking forward to giving Raider Nation a proper home. Don’t give up. We’ll get there.”

Davis went on to say that the extra $100 million loan provided by the NFL “won’t bridge the gap” between the Raiders and the City of Oakland, per Bair. Davis explains that the holdup with the city remains on available land.
In addition, Davis would not speculate about San Antonio or San Diego as possible relocation options.
Regardless of all speculation, Bair insists that remaining in the Bay Area for 2016 is the highest of likelihoods for the Raiders at this point.
Oakland mayor Libby Schaaf issued a statement on Tuesday regarding the Raiders.

Texans

Owner Bob McNair said the Texans would like to draft a quarterback this offseason and sign a veteran player to help build the prospect.

We need to get a good young quarterback in the draft and bring him along,” said McNair, via Aaron Wilson. “We’ll probably want a veteran to work with a young guy. Brian [Hoyer] did a lot of good things this year.”

In addition, McNair believes there are “good prospects” available, so it’s safe to say Houston will be exploring their options at the quarterback position.

Regarding veteran RB Arian Foster, McNair would not commit to the running back in 2016 and said the team will evaluate his health as the offseason progresses.
