Rams officially file for relocation to Los Angeles


The St. Louis Rams informed the National Football League on Monday, Jan. 4 that they intend to officially propose relocation to Los Angeles.

The relocation would be effective for the 2016 NFL league year.

The Rams join the San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders who are all joining the race to return the NFL to the LA area.

The applications will be reviewed by league staff and three committees of owners that will meet in New York on Wednesday and Thursday. All owners will meet in Houston next week and are expected to vote on whether to allow any of the teams to move. A team wanting to move needs 24 of 32 votes.
