Sources also tell Bonsignore that the Raiders are prepared to join the Rams in Los Angeles should the Chargers’ deal to move there fall through, though that seems unlikely. The Raiders also remain at odds with Oakland over funding for a new stadium and acquiring the land to build one.
That leaves San Diego, which, assuming the Chargers do move, will have an opening that the NFL will want to get back into. In fact, according to Bonsignore, there is a chance the NFL would waive the relocation free to push a move along. There would also be a wide base of support for a new team in San Diego, and there is a chance that Raiders owner Mark Davis would have an easier time getting a stadium deal done with the city than Chargers owner Dean Spanos has.
Apparently, there is a real possibility that this scenario could at least be explored. Perhaps Philip Rivers should grab a paper bag.
