Khan would pay $25M to ex-Jags owner's charity if team moves


Part of Wayne Weaver's sale of the Jacksonville Jaguars to Shahid Khan included a clause in which Khan must pay $25 million to the charity of Weaver's choice should he move the team within five years of the purchase date, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Khan has been adamant that he doesn't plan to move the team, and he spoke on that topic at length during the last week's league meetings in Dallas.

Also, the Jaguars' stadium lease is very restrictive, and ultimately the team would have to prove hardship -- in a Jacksonville court -- and pay a significant fee in order to move. But the charity clause by Weaver is one more sign of his desire for the team to remain where it is.

In conversations with multiple high-ranking sources during the league meetings, most believed the San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams had the greatest likelihood of moving to Los Angeles, with a growing sentiment that eventually the Oakland Raiders will join the San Francisco 49ers at the new facility 49ers ownership is seeking to break ground on in Santa Clara this spring.
