NFL Teams May Head to L.A.
No matter what sport it is, change is always a constant thing. As far as the future of the NFL is concerned, one of those changes may include bringing some teams back to Los Angeles.
According to New York Giants owner John Mara, the NFL will have at least one team based in the Los Angeles area in the next year. This statement was made during the NFL’s team owner meetings, and it should be noted that it has been more than twenty years since there was an NFL team in Los Angeles.
There is no official word on which teams will be the ones making the move, although the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders are the first names to cross anyone’s mind about the subject. The St. Louis Rams have also been named in contention with this, and are also the more likely or motivated teams to do so, according to some. Stan Kroenke, who is the Rams owner, also happens to own some land in the L.A. area, which would be a prime spot to build a stadium, if the Rams ever did come to a moving decision.
Fans like Brian Torchin know that, in any case, chances are very good that within the near future the L.A. will see at least one NFL team play there, though team owners did not vote on this decision during this week’s meetings.
