The Dallas Cowboys hold their training camp in Oxnard, California every year, but they may not be the only team in the area for long if the NFL makes a return to Los Angeles, which is nearly sixty miles East of the Cowboys training camp location.
While speaking about a potential NFL return to Los Angeles, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones made it very clear that he believes the league will be making a return to the city before we all know it.
“Closer than ever — ever being since they left, which has been a long time much to my surprise and anticipation,” Jones said. ”There are some viable ways for a team or teams to be in Los Angeles. We’ve got some very talented and very qualified people that want to be a part of it that are not a part of the league right now. We, obviously, have people within the league that want this very much. . . .
“I think we’re closer. I say that not just wishing. I say that, technically, because I’m aware of some things that make sense.”
Of course, there will be no team in Los Angeles unless a stadium is built, so we still are quite a bit away from having a new team on the West Coast.
When the time does finally come, there is a chance that the league will add another team, as well. A new team in Los Angeles is more likely to come from the league expanding to 34 teams, rather than a simple relocation of a franchise.
