Some say the Raiders will not move to Las Vegas due to issues with legal sports betting but the NFL is saying that is not the case.

In a memo released Saturday, the NFL said there's nothing forbidding any team from moving to a particular city. Any proposal to move would go under the usual relocation protocol, including three-fourths of the 32 owners would have to approve the move.

This is the first time the NFL has commented on the Raiders' possible move to Las Vegas. The memo comes following last week's meeting between Sands Chairman Sheldon Adelson and Raiders owner Mark Davis.
