The Los Angeles Rams announced they would be making the move back to California earlier this month and it looks like the San Diego Chargers could be joining them very soon. When the Rams won the bid to move out of St. Louis, the NFL gave the Chargers the option to join them, on which a decision had to be made before January 15, 2017.
While nothing has become official yet, it looks like the NFL could have two teams in the City of Angels very soon. According to The San Diego Union-Tribune, the Chargers and Rams have agreed in principle to share the new stadium in Inglewood, which is being built at the site of the old Hollywood Race Track and is set to open in 2019.
The agreement allows the Chargers to move to Los Angeles if they so choose. Chairman Dean Spanos released a statement saying that the team would stay in San Diego for the 2016 season, which you can read in its entirety here.
The Chargers could have their deadline to move to Los Angeles extended to 2018 if they get a stadium initiative approved this year. Could we be seeing three teams share the LA Coliseum during the 2017 NFL season?
