Source: Raiders out of the running for LA

January 12, 2016

HOUSTON (AP) — The Oakland Raiders are likely out of the running for a move to Los Angeles and the San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams are negotiating a deal to share a stadium in Inglewood, California, a source told The Associated Press Tuesday night.

The source requested anonymity because he wasn’t allowed to discuss the negotiations.

All three teams want to move to the nation’s second-largest media market, which has been without an NFL team since the Raiders and Rams moved out in 1994.

The Raiders and Chargers had agreed to share a stadium in Carson, California. Rams owner Stan Kroenke wants to build a $1.8 billion showplace in Inglewood, closer to downtown LA.
