Rams and Chargers representatives expected to meet Monday

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) - 6:00 p.m. - It's a story that's seen more ups and downs than the Dow Jones. 

The still unresolved questions about the Chargers and where they'll play next year continue to only stir more speculation.

Over the weekend, a prominent L.A. sportscaster reported that the Chargers plan to leave San Diego and the Oakland Raiders may be moving here.

On Monday, a crucial meeting is scheduled for Bolts owner Dean Spanos. 

2:00 p.m. - Representatives from the Los Angeles Rams and San Diego Chargers will meet on Monday to discuss the Chargers joining the Rams in Los Angeles, perhaps in time for the 2016 season.

Following a dramatic decision by the NFL last week, the Chargers need to make a plan that would allow them to play in Los Angeles next season.

The two teams would then open their Inglewood stadium together in 2019, but for that to happen, the teams would need to make an agreement within the next two weeks.

For that to happen, the two sides would have to come to an agreement within the next two weeks.

The options for the Chargers are clear:

  • 1. Make a deal with the Rams and decisively announce their intentions to move to Los Angeles for 2016.
  • 2. Agree to the framework of a deal, then remain in San Diego for the 2016 season using the Rams deal as leverage to motivate San Diego to come up with - and approve - a stadium plan to keep the Chargers. If San Diego doesn't deliver, the Chargers have a guaranteed spot in L.A. beginning in 2017.
  • 3. Decide immediately no deal with the Rams is possible, back out entirely, go back to work in San Diego and open a spot in Los Angeles for the Raiders.

It's clear the Chargers don't believe that San Diego can deliver on a stadium deal and a year working on one would probably be a year wasted.

Right now, the team is looking for every reason to make a move to Los Angeles possible.
