The window for seeking formal permission to relocate to Los Angeles opens on Monday, and one of the members of the league’s six-person L.A. committee expects at least one team to make the move in 2016.
Via the Associated Press, Chiefs owner Clark Hunt declined on Sunday to name which team would move from among the Rams, Chargers, and Raiders.
“All three of those franchises have tremendous fan bases in their home markets,” Hunt said. “In an ideal world, I’d like to see them all stay where they are. It probably won’t work out that way. There will probably be at least one team moving to LA. I can’t speculate who that might be.”
Hunt said that work will continue this week, in advance of a January 12-13 ownership meeting in Houston.
“There’s still a lot of information we need to look at,” Hunt said. “[W]e have to consider opportunities that have been put forward by the markets in Oakland, St. Louis and San Diego for their teams to stay.”
If only one team will move, it likely would be the Rams moving to Inglewood or the Chargers moving to Carson. The Raiders and Chargers hope to share the site in Carson; it’s also possible that one of those two teams will join the Rams in Inglewood.
Plenty of other outcomes are possible. What’s becoming more and more clear is that, however it works out, at least one team will be moving to Los Angeles.
