A group of businessmen and investors announced Friday that they have made a $92.5 million bid to purchase the city of Oakland’s stake in the Oakland Coliseum site. The goal is to bring an expansion team back to Oakland. More uniquely, the group wants to be the first NFL team that is majority-owned by African Americans.
If the group is successful, what would an Oakland NFL expansion look like? One possibility would be to bring the Los Angeles Chargers up to Oakland.
The other possibility is a brand new expansion team.
Here is some possible expansion team names:
- Oakland Football Team
- Oakland Warriors
- Oakland Admirals
- Oakland Diablos
- Oakland Seawolves
- Oakland Knights
- Oakland Redwoods
- Oakland Clippers
Could the NFL come back to Oakland?
