For almost fourteen years now, the closest Los Angeles has been to an NFL team has been the USC Trojans. Well, that is about to change.

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be moving to Los Angeles, and it could happen as soon as next season. With attendance down, the Jags have been trying to gain more support from their fans. They were even thinking about playing some games in Orlando.

My source tells me that the decision has already been made, but the front office is not announcing it, in an effort to not disrupt support from the fans in Jacksonville. At this point, there has been no decision as to whether or not the team's name will remain the "Jaguars."

The team will play at the Los Angeles Coliseum for two to three years, before ultimately moving to a stadium that will be built in the City of Industry. Here is a link to view the stadium that will be built:

I have also learned, that there is a large possibility that the St. Louis Rams could relocate back to Los Angeles. This may come as no shock, as the team is up for sale;  new ownership may seek more opportunities by moving the team back to L.A.

The NFL will be back in Los Angeles soon enough.
