Three NFL Teams File For Relocation
Relax. It's not the Chicago Bears or the Green Bay Packers. But three NFL Teams have filed applications for relocation to Los Angeles. Here are the teams who want to move.
Monday was the first day the organizations were eligible to petition the league, as required by the NFL Policy and Procedures for Proposed Franchise Relocations.
According to the NFL, "The applications will be reviewed this week by league staff and three league committees that will meet in New York on Wednesday and Thursday -- the Los Angeles Opportunities, Stadium, and Finance committees. The applications will be presented for consideration at next week's league meeting in Houston on Tuesday and Wednesday. The relocation of a franchise requires the affirmative vote of three-quarters of the NFL clubs (24 of 32)."
The San Diego Chargers, The St. Louis Rams, and The Oakland Raiders informed the National Football League that they would like to move to Los Angeles.
The matter is now in the hands of the NFL's owners. An owners' meeting is scheduled to take place in Houston, Texas on January 12 and 13, 2016.
Can you even imagine the traffic problems if one or all three are approved for relocation? When all is said, maybe one of these teams would consider a move to Chicago. The way the Bears have played lately, it may be great to have another option.
