It has been a busy few days for the Oakland Raiders and general manager Reggie McKenzie.

This week, McKenzie has seen his team win its bid to relocate to Las Vegas, personally won the Sporting News 2016 Executive of the Year Award, and finds himself in the midst of filling out the roster with NFL free agents while also preparing for the NFL draft.

Despite his busy past few days, McKenzie still had time to sit down and discuss his thoughts on the Raiders’ relocation.

There is no doubt that it has been a tough couple of days for the fans in Oakland, as well as some of the team’s staff, and McKenzie made it clear that he understands how special Oakland is and what the city means to the Raiders.

However, playing in a state of the art stadium will bring benefits to the franchise, including more revenue and incredible facilities to attract elite free agents.
