5 NFL Teams That Could Move To Los Angeles

Los Angeles is going to be home to another NFL franchise someday. It could be someday very soon. With multiple teams around the league looking for new homes, it only makes sense that one of the biggest markets in America is in the running to land a franchise.

Here are five NFL teams that could relocate to Los Angeles, ranked from least likely, to most likely to happen:

5. Buffalo Bills

While it's technically possible that the Bills could move all the way across the country to Los Angeles, don't count on it happening. The franchise may very well be moved from Buffalo someday by the new owner, but Toronto is a much more likely destination than L.A.

The NFL isn't really talking expansion at this time. But when Roger Goodell decides to start that conversation, Los Angeles will be the natural number one spot for a new team. Forget London, the NFL needs a team in its second biggest market first.

3. St. Louis Rams

The Rams have been in L.A. before, and they could very well be in L.A. again someday. A few months back it was thought that a move was underway, with the team's owner purchasing land the Los Angeles area, but it turns out the land could be for an MLS franchise. Still, the Edward Jones Dome needs renovations. If they don't happen soon, the Rams could be headed back out west.

2. San Diego Chargers

The Chargers recently shot down the idea of playing in an NFL-owned stadium in Los Angeles, but that doesn't mean they're for sure staying in San Diego. Qualcomm Stadium is getting pretty old (opened in 1967), and there are no set plans for a new stadium in San Diego. However, ideas are currently being discussed for one on the east side of the city.

Team owner Mark Davis has said that he thinks Los Angeles would welcome the Raiders back. He's probably right. If the team can't strike a deal to stay in Oakland, you have believe the next most likely location for the silver and black is indeed L.A.
