SAN DIEGO (AP) — Chargers Chairman Dean Spanos says the team will play in San Diego in 2016 and he’ll work with politicians and the business community to try to resolve a long, bitter battle over a new stadium.

Spanos’ statement was posted on the team’s web site shortly after a report said the Chargers had reached a deal to join the Los Angeles Rams in a stadium expected to open in Inglewood in 2019.

Says Spanos: “I am committed to looking at this with a fresh perspective and new sense of possibility.”
