NFL 'Not There Yet' On L.A. Proposals 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Mar 30, 2014 4:47 pm

An NFL team in Los Angeles remains a far off possibility despite uncertain situations for the Buffalo Bills, Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams and Jacksonville Jaguars.

“We’ve been very open that if we had the right opportunity to be back in Los Angeles with the right formula — meaning a stadium — most importantly,” NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said. “We know there are millions of fans who want a team there. We would love to do that, but it has to be successful.

“We are going to do it right if we are going to do it. There are different proposals out there and different opportunities, but not one that we are focused on and can say that we have the right solution yet. We’re not there.”

Mark Davis, owner of the Raiders, has talked openly about Los Angeles as a possible future home.

The Bills have a stadium lease that runs through 2022, and for the next six years it will cost $400 million to break that lease. But it only costs $28 million to break the least in 2020.
