As expected, NFL owners unanimously approved the Raiders' new lease at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, keeping the team in Oakland, Calif., until it's ready to relocate to Las Vegas, according to Michael Gehlken of the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

The Raiders received approval from the county and city council last week. An official vote by league owners at this week's annual meeting was the only remaining hurdle.

The Raiders' new stadium in Las Vegas is expected to be completed in August 2020.
