Rams to relocate to L.A.; Chargers first option to join – NFL.com
NFL owners in Houston voted 30-2 to ratify the Rams’ relocation application for an immediate move to L.A., where the team will eventually begin play at owner Stan Kroenke’s proposed stadium site in Inglewood in 2019.
The Rams could be joined by the Chargers, who have a one-year option to decide if they want to relocate and join the Rams in Inglewood. Per NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, the Chargers will have up until the conclusion of owners meetings (March 20-23) to decide if they’re playing in L.A. or San Diego in 2016.
Chargers’ future in San Diego up to owner Dean Spanos – Los Angeles Times
San Diego’s civic leaders, while buoyed by the news that they have yet another shot at holding onto the hometown team, said it will only succeed if the Chargers ownership really wants to stay.
As word spread that team owner Dean Spanos was given the option of striking a deal with Rams owner Stan Kroenke to move to a new stadium in Los Angeles or renew talks to stay put, local stakeholders agreed there is still time — and hope —for getting public approval via the ballot.
Much, though, depends on whether Spanos can work out a deal with Kroenke that he believes will be more favorable to the team financially than remaining in San Diego.
