Well, that didn’t take long. Less than twenty-four hours after the NFL approved the Rams’ relocation to Los Angeles, the Chargers seem to be on the verge of accepting the invitation to come on board.
According to Alex Flanagan, the framework for a deal that would send the Chargers bolting up the 405 freeway is in place. Though no meeting between the respective owners has been reported, such news is definitely worth monitoring as the ripples following yesterday’s announcement continue to take shape.
The consensus since the announcement has been that it wouldn’t take long for such news to break, as the idea of playing the 2016 season as a lame duck team in San Diego is most unappealing.
Nothing is in stone yet, of course, and it wouldn’t be terribly surprising to see this saga drag out until the very last moment (the March NFL Owner’s meetings) — after all, this IS the NFL.
Until then, we will continue to keep you updated on the status of your Bolts.
Though as of this writing, nothing is imminent and the team remains San Diego’s, one question stands: if the Rams and Chargers are to share a stadium, how long will it take before Dodge snatches up the naming rights?
