Spotlight now shines on potential Chargers move

So Minnesota Vikings fans finally can start to celebrate. Vikings owner Zygi Wilf says he never considered moving the team, but the threat grew this year until a stadium deal was reached.

The spectre of Los Angeles no longer will hang over the Vikings franchise. It will hang over other NFL teams until the league finally puts a franchise back in the country's second-largest city.

So what teams are at the top of list now?

NFL Network's Albert Breer broke down the possibilities with far greater intelligence than we could, examining the five teams that are on the radar for possible teams in Los Angeles: The San Diego Chargers, St. Louis Rams, Oakland Raiders, Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills.

Of that group, San Diego and St. Louis easily look like the cities with the most to worry about. The Raiders, Jaguars and Bills look like very long shots for a variety of reasons.

"The league will wait until they get L.A. perfect -- perfect team, perfect owner, perfect location, perfect situation," one executive told Breer.

That situation hasn't come up yet. While the Rams and Chargers have some ingredients to move, the perfect team hasn't presented itself yet.
