After 55 years in San Diego, the Chargers are expected to announce as early as Thursday that the team is moving to Los Angeles. People in the NFL told ESPN that commissioner Roger Goodell and several league owners have been told by the Chargers about the team's intent to be in Los Angeles for the 2017 season. ESPN was told by one person with knowledge of the situation that Chargers chairman Dean Spanos has not yet sent the NFL a formal relocation letter, or told public officials in Los Angeles or San Diego about the move. The Chargers played their first season in Los Angeles, before moving to San Diego in 1961. The Rams returned to Los Angeles a year ago, and should the Chargers follow, the city will have two teams after spending more than 20 years without one.
