Jerry Jones says NFL coming back to LA ‘closer than ever’

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones helped sparked a new conversation about an NFL team potentially moving to Los Angeles, calling it “closer than ever” while meeting with the media during Dallas’ training camp in Oxnard, California.

“I feel more imminent about a team being in here, that it’s more imminent than any time since we haven’t had a team in Los Angeles,” Jones said during an interview with NFL Network. “And yes, this market is a huge market, it’s 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.”

As if that wasn’t enough, Jones even hinted that not just one, but two teams might be making the move to the nation’s second largest media market.

“The owners don’t mess much up … but we haven’t gotten this one right,” Jones said. “There’s people, there’s locations, there are people that are interested, a lot of people that can help us put this thing together. And as it turns out that we have at least two teams … that could move to this area.”

So what two organizations are these mystery teams? Jones didn’t enlighten the media with that information, but after 25 years as an owner in the NFL, his word should be taken seriously about two teams wanting to bring professional football back to Los Angeles.
