It's highly unlikely the Miami Dolphins make a move out to Los Angeles, even though the organization's owner is predicing that the city of angels will once again have an NFL team.

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Dolphins owner Stephen Ross predicted that Los Angeles will get a team in the not-too-distant future, saying it will happen "certainly in the next five years."

That's quite a prediction considering it's been nearly two decades since football was last in Los Angeles.

With Ross predicting this, speculation will soon abound. Three top candidates would likely be San Diego, Buffalo and Jacksonville.

Of course, an owner would have to be in dire need of relocating, as well as being able to foster a working relationship with the Los Angeles government. There are a ton of factors that go into something like this happening, making it reasonably tough for a team to actually want to move to L.A. at this time.
