NFL commissioner Roger Goodell confirmed Friday that St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke informed the league of a recent purchase of a 60-acre tract of land in Inglewood, Calif.
According to Goodell, that knowledge didn’t come with any discussion of building or developing a plan to make the location the future home of a football stadium.
The Rams’ lease with the Edward Jones Dome contains an escape clause that is set to kick in at the end of the 2014 season. If the stadium hasn’t been upgraded to one of the eight best venues in the NFL before that time, the Rams’ lease will then become a year-to-year proposition beginning in 2015.
Pure coincidence, I’m sure.
I’m betting we see the Rams back in Los Angeles by 2017.
