NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Sunday on NFL Network's GameDay Morning that all three teams will file. It isn't a surprise that the three teams that have been jockeying for position to move to Los Angeles will apply.
More interesting is the relocation fee an owner must pay for the right to move a franchise, which Rapoport reported is $550 million per team that relocates to L.A.
Only teams that are approved to move would be required to pay that hefty fee.
Whichever team or teams get left out of the L.A. mix, the league is expected to help secure a new home, per Rapoport.
Some other tidbits on potential relocation from RapSheet:
- Heading into the January 12 meeting on relocation, no side right now is set to get the 24 votes needed to approve a move. There will need to be a compromise.
