Chargers must decide between Inglewood or San Diego
SAN DIEGO (AP) The San Diego Chargers face a big decision: take the option to move to Los Angeles along with the Rams, or accept an extra $100 million from the NFL and try to work out a new stadium deal in San Diego.
Team chairman Dean Spanos looked stunned at the decision by fellow owners to let the Rams move from St. Louis to Los Angeles.
The Chargers walked away from negotiations with the city and county in June, instead focusing on a stadium they wanted to build in Carson with the rival Oakland Raiders.
That project lost out to a proposal by Rams owner Stan Kroenke to build a stadium in Inglewood.
San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer says the city and county will negotiate but "are not interested in a charade by the Chargers if they continue to pursue Los Angeles."
