Report: Chargers will soon announce move from San Diego to Los Angeles

After 55 years in San Diego, the Chargers are expected to announce as early as Thursday that the team is moving to Los Angeles, ESPN reports.

People in the NFL told the network 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. One person with knowledge of the situation did tell ESPN 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 one year ago, and should the Chargers follow, the city will have two teams after spending more than 20 years without one.
