We already know the Rams are returning to Los Angeles, and it’s looking like the Chargers will as well.
Alex Flanagan of NBC Sports and NFL Network reports that the framework of a deal that would allow the Rams and Chargers to share a stadium is now in place, and that barring anything unforeseen, the Chargers will accept the deal and move to Los Angeles as well.
The Chargers were hoping to get the approval of their fellow owners for their own plan to move to Los Angeles yesterday. Instead, the owners approved the Rams’ plan, but said that the Chargers would have the option of joining with the Rams. It appears that after a day to think about it, the Chargers have decided to accept that arrangement.
It’s unclear whether the Chargers will move to a temporary home in Los Angeles in 2016, as the Rams plan to do, or if the Chargers could stay in San Diego this year. But it sounds like when the new Los Angeles stadium opens in 2019, it will be the home of both the Los Angeles Rams and the Los Angeles Chargers.
UPDATE 6:43 p.m.: The Chargers have denied that anything is imminent.
