Three NFL teams apply for relocation to Los Angeles

640x360_51201B00-VCNIRThe San Diego Chargers, the Oakland Raiders, and the Saint Louis Rams all filed for relocation to Los Angeles Monday night.

The nation’s second largest market seems destined to get an NFL franchise for the first time in 21 years. The San Diego Chargers have been battling with city leaders to replace the aging Quallcomm Stadium for years.

Efforts to get a new stadium became more intense when the Saint Louis Rams owner said he had plans to build a stadium in a LA suburb.

The Raiders, who moved from Los Angeles after the 1994 season, may partner with the chargers on a stadium in another LA suburb. League staff and three committees of owners will review the applications in New York on Wednesday and Thursday.

All of the owners are expected to meet next week to vote on whether to allow any of the teams to move.
