Jerry Jones: 2 NFL teams could move to LA


Los Angeles has been without an NFL team for a while. It is the United States’ second largest market, has a NHL team, two NBA teams and two MLB teams but zero NFL teams. There have been rumors that one team could be headed to Los Angeles.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said it could be 2 teams actually. Not expansion teams either, two teams could be moving to Los Angeles.

“I think with basis, I feel more imminent about a team being in here, that is it more imminent, than any time since we haven’t had a team in Los Angeles,” Jones told Rich Eisen and Michael Irvin on NFL Network, via Pro Football Talk.  ”This market is a huge market.  It is a little bit of a black eye for all of us to have had this many years and not had an NFL team in Los Angeles.  The owners don’t mess much up; I am saying that with a smile.  But we haven’t gotten this one right.  There are people, there are locations, there are people that are interested — viable people — that could help us put this thing together.

“As it turns out, we do have two teams . . . that could move to this area. There won’t be any expansion, so it will be teams that move.”

The San Diego Chargers have been linked with a move to LA, as well as the St. Louis Rams, both teams played in Los Angeles before.

There has been a proposal that would put the NFL stadium next to the Staples Center and Nokia Theater in LA (see a computer rendering here).

    How about moving your damn Cowgirls to LA and let a real person run the team you silly old fool. I swear, every year the cowboys suck, makes it for a good year for me. I live in Texas, and am a die hard Charger fan, roots are in Del Mar, and my father has lived in Pt. Loma or Del Mar for the last 50 years. Bolts aint going nowhere old man, keep those crazy thoughts to your self.
