The San Diego Chargers were originally given until January 15th, a Sunday during the NFL’s Divisional Playoff Games, to make their decision on whether or not they would be moving to Los Angeles or forfeiting that option to the Oakland Raiders.

Today, the NFL has done the right thing in extending that deadline, according to our own Kevin Acee.

There were many rumors that the team was ready to make an announcement on January 12th, but that date could be pushed back to the 16th or 17th now that Dean Spanos and the Chargers ownership has a few more days to potentially negotiate with the NFL and the other team owners.
