In a podcast with The MMQB's Peter King (h/t the San Jose Mercury News' Jon Becker), Goodell confirmed he spoke with Schaaf on Wednesday about a plan for the Raiders to stay in their current home.
However, DeBolt obtained a copy of the letter Goodell wrote to Schaaf in which he argued Oakland's current stadium proposal isn't "clear and specific, actionable in a reasonable time frame and free of major contingencies."
In December, the Oakland City Council voted 7-0 in favor of pursuing a proposal spearheaded by NFL Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott. Under the plan, the stadium would cost $1.3 billion, with the city of Oakland and the NFL each contributing $200 million of the price tag, per DeBolt.
However, in December, Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reported the odds remained strong the Raiders would move to Las Vegas.
After casino magnate Sheldon Adelson backed out of an investment deal for a Vegas stadium, Bank of America agreed to help finance the Raiders' $1.9 billion venue in Sin City, clearing a big hurdle for the team.
On Wednesday, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Raiders are likely to receive approval from the requisite number of team owners for relocation, either at the upcoming annual league meetings or May's spring league meeting.
