On Tuesday, NFL vice president of communications Joe Lockhart denied recent speculation that the NFL and Chargers could consider a possible return to San Diego.

“The only place I’ve heard that, is that I’ve seen it on the internet,” Lockhart said, via USA Today. “There are no discussions of returning to San Diego from the league or from the club.”

Lockhart stressed that Chargers owner Dean Spanos is well aware of the fact that this will be a long-term process for the franchise.

“Mr. Spanos has talked about this being a process,” Lockhart said. “About getting in and doing the hard work of connecting with the new community. That’s what they’re doing. You ask about what the league can do, the Commissioner was there Saturday night with important partners of the Chargers, talking to them, and was there again Sunday morning with partners and fans, three and a half hours before the game, and spent time with the team, the executives, some of the former players.

“So we stand ready, and I think the Commissioner is ready to do what we can to help build that fan base and the market. Again, I think that the club has made it clear that they didn’t expect this to happen overnight. It’s a process, and they’re building toward what we all believe will be a spectacular, new venue that will support both teams there in a very strong way.


Bears QB Mike Glennon said he plans to handle his benching “like a pro” as the team moves forward with rookie QB Mitch Trubisky.

“You always try to have perspective on things,” Glennon said, via “Obviously not what I wanted. Not what I had hoped for. Not what I envisioned. But you look around the country, the world, and you see what’s going on, and that kind of brings perspective back into things. I always try to have that perspective on just the grand scheme of life, even in disappointing times.”


  • Ian Rapoport reports that Seahawks DE Cliff Avril is likely out for Sunday’s game against the Rams, as he’s dealing with a bad stinger and numbness from a kick.
  • According to Rapoport, Avril is considered Week-to-week until the feeling comes back.
