- On Wednesday, Seth Wickersham of ESPN reports that a major topic of discussion at the NFL owners meeting this week is the viability of the Chargers in Los Angeles.
- According to Wickersham, PSL sales for the Chargers have been a struggle and the team has been forced to adjust their revenue goals drastically. Wickersham mentions that the Chargers are now projecting $150 million, which is down from $400 million.
- While there’s been speculation of a potential return to San Diego, Albert Breer says that he doesn’t think there’s any turning back now for the Chargers’ move to Los Angeles. Breer mentions that once the Chargers started selling their inventory in Inglewood earlier this year, that sort of did it for them.
Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a source with knowledge of the situation, reports that the Chargers have a firm 20-year lease at the stadium in Inglewood, which means they aren’t going to be leaving L.A. for at least the next 20 years. Florio adds that the Chargers also hold a pair of exclusive 10-year options after the first 20-year term.
According to Florio, the Chargers don’t want out of this contract either, as they will get the opportunity to play in a brand new stadium without paying any construction costs.
- According to Ian Rapoport, the Raiders have been fined $20,000 for violating the NFL Injury Report Policy for failing to downgrade G Kelechi Osemele from “questionable” to “out” after he didn’t travel with the team to their Week 5 game against the Chargers.
Rams’ fifth-round OLB Ogbonnia Okoronkwo (foot) said he has felt “great” for the past couple of weeks and is waiting to be activated from the PUP list.
“I’ve felt great for a couple weeks now, I was just waiting on the PUP rules. Now that I’m free I’m having fun,” said Okoronkwo, via Vincent Bonsignore of The Athletic.
- Okoronkwo officially returned to practice on Thursday, which opens a three-week window of time for him to be activated from the PUP list.
