It's been a 20 year drought.
"As the 20th anniversary of the NFL's departure from Los Angeles, the NFL seems closer than ever to returning," writes Florio. "Per a league source, the current plan is that the NFL will send one or two teams back to Los Angeles within the next 12 to 24 months."
Among the top contenders to move to L.A. are the San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders and St. Louis Rams. All of them have played in the city before, and until a new stadium would be erected in Los Angeles, the prospective team or teams would play in the L.A. Coliseum or Rose Bowl.
Thus far in the 2014 season, Oakland and St. Louis have a combined 1-7 record. Either organization could use a change of scenery to refresh their respective outlooks.
I like the idea of bringing the Rams back. Being in St Louis makes no sense for a WEST team.
