The NFL commissioner has made it clear that teams do move when economic conditions warrant, he said. "I can put two and two together," Dayton told MPR. "More than likely we won't have a team within 5 years if we don't have a new stadium underway... We can duck this, and the Vikings can leave and that won't look so good, either."
