The Oakland Raiders will have to shell out $378-million relocation fee for their upcoming move to Las Vegas, according to Darren Rovell of ESPN.

The payout will begin the year they move to Nevada and the payment will be made over the space of 10 years, with the money being evenly dispersed among the 31 other teams.

Factoring in the moves of the Chargers and the Rams to Los Angeles, the other 29 NFL teams will each receive a gross sum of $55.2  million over an 11-year period. The Chargers and the Rams are both paying a larger fee than the Raiders — $645 million a piece — because the figures are "commensurate with the projected value increase," per Rovell.
