The Raiders are (eventually) moving to Las Vegas, and will be that much closer to the Cardinals — who have been frequent preseason partners with the AFC team. That convenience isn’t lost on Cardinals president Michael Bidwill.
“I think our fans are going to love it when that stadium is built and there is a preseason game (in Vegas),” Bidwill said from the NFL owners meetings at the Arizona Biltmore. “I think they will be in full force supporting the Cardinals. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Because of multiple trips in recent years, Bidwill and the Cardinals are familiar with the stadium issues in Oakland.
“I’m happy for the Raiders because this really solidifies their future,” Bidwill said. “It had been a struggle. We played them many times, particularly preseason games in Oakland, and that’s a tough place to play. It’s definitely not up to NFL standards. I’m glad they’ve got a bright future.”
