Chargers a Solid Canadiate to Move to Los Angeles?

There are lots of rumors and talks about what team may end up in Los Angeles. You would think that the Jags would be the top choice, as they get a lack of support in Jacksonville. But how about the Chargers?

The North County Times reports that the Chargers at the end of the day may be the team to end up playing ball in L.A.

Here is a tidbit from the article about the team possibly finding a new home:

The Chargers could also be a viable candidate should their local stadium search turn sour. The team can exercise an escape clause in its Qualcomm Stadium lease beginning on Feb. 1 of each year starting in 2009, with a buyout that decreases annually. The current $56 million buyout is pricey, but the payment decreases to an relatively affordable $26 million in 2011. Chargers president Dean Spanos is friends with Roski and spoke with him last summer about the project, but remains committed to staying in San Diego. “I know Ed Roski, and I can go on his Web site like everyone else and read all about the proposed stadium, Spanos said. “But I haven’t had any specific dealings with him, nor have I spoken with him in a long time. Our focus right now is on Chula Vista. That’s where we’re looking.”

The team admits that it won’t look forever. Industry might make for an easy move, with a stadium plan in place and the legal hurdles already cleared. That might be attractive to a team that has dealt with stadium issues for years, with no end in sight.
