On Wednesday, Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com provided comments from Davis, with Oakland alleging his decision to move the team to Las Vegas in 2020 is illegal.
"My feeling is we're 3-10 and we're still relevant," he said. "It's a legal issue, and I'll let the attorneys make any further comment."
Tim Kawakami of The Athletic reported the Raiders previously stated they wouldn't play the 2019 season in Oakland if the city filed the lawsuit. Gutierrez provided an early list of options for a one-year host city if an early move to Las Vegas isn't possible:

While the #Raiders don't have a home for 2019, they would like to stay in Oakland. But if the lawsuit makes that impossible, expect San Diego and Santa Clara's Levi's Stadium to become clubhouse leaders but don't discount an early move to Las Vegas or even...Reno. Yes, Reno.
Glendale, Arizona, home of the Cardinals, is another potential landing spot, per Gutierrez.
Oakland city attorney Barbara J. Parker released a statement Tuesday saying the city is seeking to "recover damages" from the Raiders' upcoming move to Las Vegas, including "lost revenue, money that Oakland taxpayers invested in the Raiders and other costs:"
"The defendants brazenly violated federal antitrust law and the league's own policies when they boycotted Oakland as a host city. The Raiders' illegal move lines the pockets of NFL owners and sticks Oakland, its residents, taxpayers and dedicated fans with the bill. The purpose of this lawsuit is to hold the defendants accountable and help to compensate Oakland for the damages the defendants' unlawful actions have caused and will cause to the people of Oakland."
In March, NFL owners voted to approve the Raiders' relocation by a 31-1 margin, with the Miami Dolphins being the only franchise to vote against the measure.
Meanwhile, the team has struggled in what's shaping up to become its final season in Oakland with a 3-10 record that included a five-game midseason losing streak under returning head coach Jon Gruden.
The Raiders announced the firing of general manager Reggie McKenzie on Monday following a 24-21 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
