The NFL sent out a memo to NFL owners regarding a possible move to Las Vegas

As the Oakland Raiders continue to look for a permanent home, more and more cities are popping up as a possible destination.

The latest city to pop up is Sin City, Las Vegas. Sands Las Vegas is apparently ready to help Raiders owner Mark Davis find a permanent home in Las Vegas.

It appears the NFL has distributed a memo to teams around the league in case they are asked about the possible move. The following is the memo sent, as was recovered by NFL Media's Albert Beer.

There have been reports over the last day about a proposal to construct a new stadium in Las Vegas in connection with a possible move of the Raiders to Las Vegas. If your club owner or executives are asked about this, there is no need to comment. If any comment is offered, please keep the following points in mind:

1. All decisions regarding the location of teams are made by the full membership. Three-fourths of the member clubs must approve any team move.

2. No proposal made to the league. It would be speculative to suggest that your club would or would not support such a proposal. If such a proposal is made, it would be considered under the leagueâ??s relocation policies.

3. There is no prohibition under league rules on a team moving to any particular city. Any proposal for relocation would be evaluated based on the same standards as apply to any proposed move. Those standards are well-known, having just been applied in connection with relocation proposals to Los Angeles
