Earlier this season there was speculation of the Raiders, Chargers, or Rams making a move to the city of angels. However, Rams owner Stan Kroenke has announced a collaboration with the owners of the Hollywood Park site to build an NFL stadium, the Hollywood Park Land Company announced today.

The NFL has already announced that there will be no team in L.A. for the 2015 season but Kroenke is already looking towards 2016. The Rams are expected to go on a year by year lease for their current stadium, leaving the door open for a 2016 move.

In order for construction to begin a measure will have to be passed Inglewood municipal ballot in 2015 and the process of collecting signatures will likely start soon.

Terry Fancher, founder of Stockbridge Capital Group (which owns the 298-acre Hollywood Park site) said in a release.

We are excited to unveil an expanded plan that will bring a world-class sports and entertainment district to Hollywood Park... We are committed to working with [the Kroenke Group] to build a project that will put Inglewood back on the map as home of the truly great sports and entertainment venues.

The Rams owner is taking a huge risk building a stadium with guarantee that he will have the support of Goodell or the other NFL owners. Another unique possibility is that the Rams will not be able to make the move back west but that the Chargers could leave San Diego and lease the stadium. To add to the mix we could also be seeing the Raiders play in San Antonio as the possible game of musical chairs continues.

Do you believe the Rams will head back to L.A.? Let us know in the comments section below.
