The rumors about the NFL moving to Los Angeles have been swirling for years and have especially gained traction in the past year or so with multiple teams talking about building stadiums in the area. Let the rumor mill fire up again in light of a recent job posting made by the San Diego Chargers.
Credit SI.com’s Extra Mustard for finding this online posting from the team that lists as one of the requirements of the position “Willing to relocate to the Los Angeles area if necessary.” Take a look at the screenshot below.
Everybody Panic! The Chargers are moving to LA! The rumors are true!
In all seriousness though, calm down San Diego fans, there’s a couple of key words at the tail end of that which shows the Chargers are continuing to hedge their bets. “If necessary”. Those two words are applied to situations we’re not sure will happen but are certainly a possibility. It’s like Games 5, 6, and 7 in a playoff series. They’re there in case you need them. That’s not to say there’s no chance that the Chargers don’t move, but this isn’t a clear indicator either.
