NFL to San Antonio?

Three NFL teams are vying for two likely spots to call Los Angeles home, so might San Antonio scoop the odd team out? It doesn’t seem like it, at least not right now.

Back in early December, Mayor Ivy Taylor told KTSA an NFL team wasn’t a priority anymore: “It’s not a priority as far as continuing to meet and present options,” she said.

The idea of the NFL in SA is not entirely dead, Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff said.

“The problem you have with all of these teams is that they want a new stadium on top of what you got now,” Wolff told KTSA News. “And if you want to build a new stadium, put a 1 and B together, $1 Billion.”

It’s likely that San Antonio may become an attractive market for the NFL, “because of the growth of this market, the growth of this city, Texas as just a football-centric state,” ESPN San Antonio’s Ari Temkin said.

But, he said, a stadium problem exists.

“Is the Alamodome capable? Yes. Is the Alamodome attractive? No,” Temkin said.
