Add Jerry Jones to the list of owners who believe the NFL will return to Los Angeles in the relatively near future.
In an appearance on PFT Live last week, the Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager said he could see the Raiders, the Chargers or the Rams making the move in 2016. Or maybe two of the three.
“It does [look like a team or two will return to L.A. in 2016],” Jones said, per Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. “[Chargers owner] Dean Spanos is outstanding, [Raiders owner] Mark Davis has got a legacy associated with Los Angeles, the Raiders, and of course [Rams owner] Stan Kroenke is one of the top owners we have in the room. They’re doers, their teams are in a position that can do it.
“It’s going to mean a huge risk and a huge commitment of dollars to whoever does it. That will assure us that they’ll kill themselves making this a success. Los Angeles is big to the NFL, it’s bigger than your normal consideration. Los Angeles just has a ‘wow’ factor that we’ve got to do it right. And that’s my biggest concern. All of these guys are capable, they’ve got teams that the fans of Los Angeles are familiar with in all cases; two that have been in Los Angeles and one that’s been right down the road. So this is a good situation I think.”
