The Oakland Raiders, St. Louis Rams and San Diego Chargers have each submitted applications to relocate their franchises to the Los Angeles area beginning in the 2016 season, according to a release from the NFL.
The Raiders filed the papers Monday night to go back to Los Angeles for the second time. The team left Oakland following the 1981 season before returning from Los Angeles in 1995.
Raiders owner Mark Davis wants to partner with the division rival San Diego Chargers to build a stadium in Carson.
Each team submitted the appropriate documentation in support of their applications, the league said. The applications will be reviewed this week by league staff and three league committees that will meet in New York on Wednesday and Thursday.
The applications will then be presented for consideration at a meeting in Houston next week. The relocation of a franchise requires the affirmative vote of three-quarters of the NFL clubs — 24 of the 32 teams.
