Chargers staying in San Diego for 2016, reach agreement with Rams for Inglewood option
The San Diego Chargers have an option and agreement with the Los Angeles Rams to go to Inglewood within the next year, but they're not done in San Diego. Chargers owner Dean Spanos announced today that the team will remain in San Diego in 2016 as he tries to obtain a new stadium. "Today I decided our team will stay in San Diego for the 2016 season and I hope for the long term in a new stadium," Spanos said. "I have met with Mayor Faulconer and Supervisor Roberts and I look forward to working closely with them and the business community to resolve our stadium dilemma. We have an option and an agreement with the Los Angeles Rams to go to Inglewood in the next year, but my focus is on San Diego. This has been our home for 55 years, and I want to keep the team here and provide the world-class stadium experience you deserve. "Everyone on both sides of the table in San Diego must now determine the best next steps and how to deploy the additional resources provided by the NFL. I am committed to looking at this with a fresh perspective and new sense of possibility." Follow me on Twitter: @AaronWilson_NFL Aaron Wilson covers the Texans for The Houston Chronicle.
