Dallas Mayor Advocates for Chiefs to Join Cowboys in Shared Stadium

Mayor Eric Johnson of Dallas is making bold moves to bring not just one, but potentially two NFL teams to his city. In particular, Johnson has expressed interest in welcoming the Kansas City Chiefs back to their original home as the Dallas Texans.

The Kansas City Chiefs are facing uncertainty about their future after voters in Jackson County, Missouri rejected a sales tax proposal for stadium renovations. Chiefs chairman and CEO Clark Hunt has voiced concerns about the team’s future in Kansas City without proper funding for these renovations.

Johnson believes that Dallas is a strong market for football and can support a second NFL team, despite the presence of the Dallas Cowboys. However, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has voiced opposition to the idea of another NFL team in Dallas, citing the value of the Cowboys as a marquee franchise.

Speculation is swirling around the potential relocation of the Chiefs, with Dallas being one of the suggested destinations. The Chiefs’ lease at Arrowhead Stadium does not expire until 2031, giving them time to explore their options before making any decisions.

It remains to be seen how this situation will unfold, but one thing is clear – Mayor Johnson is determined to make Dallas a powerhouse in the world of professional football once again. Stay tuned for more updates on this developing story on Shiv Telegram Media.
