NFL Notes: Los Angeles, Richie Incognito, 49ers, Giants

Los Angeles

Jason Cole of the Bleacher Report reports that the owner of the Hollywood Park site, Terry Fancher of Stockbridge Capital, is asking in excess of $500 million for the property.

Sources tell Cole that Fancher was even asking over $600 million at one point, even though he purchased it for $260 million back in 2005.

According to Cole, if this land is purchased at even a reasonable sum of money like $300 million, it would still come on top of construction costs for a stadium, which could run as much as $1.5 billion.

Add in the fact that the NFL changes franchises a relocation fee of $500 million and it’s becoming an extremely expensive undertaking.

The Rams and Raiders are reportedly considering this option, but the Chargers have yet to explore the idea, according to Cole.

Richie Incognito

Earlier in the day, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that the Broncos brought in veteran G Richie Incognito for a workout and a visit on Monday.

As of now, the Broncos will not be signing him to a contract, but they could always reconsider the idea in the coming weeks.

Ed Werder reports that Incognito had previously worked out for the Chiefs and Buccaneers.

49ers

  • LB Patrick Willis said he believes he still has another five or six “great years” in him.

I don’t look to play this game for just another year,” Willis said, via CSN Bay Area. “I feel like I have five or six more great years of football left in my body. Unfortunately, this toe was telling me otherwise.”

Willis added that the toe injury that led to him being placed on season-ending injured reserve Tuesday had been bothering him for quite some time.

“It’s been something that I’ve been dealing with for a while now,” Willis said. “I could argue and say, ‘Should I have done it earlier before it got as bad as it did, before I hurt it worse than I did in the Rams game?’ I could, but I’m not going to, because I felt like at the time, I’ve always been a fighter and always been a competitor, so I’m going to fight and I’m go until I can’t go anymore.

“When I hurt it in the Rams game, it made me nervous then because I knew what I had already been feeling all these years.”
