HOUSTON (KRON/AP)–NFL team owners met Tuesday night in Houston to vote on whether to allow the Raiders, Chargers and St. Louis Rams franchises to move and bring professional football back to Los Angeles.
All three teams filed a relocation application the day after the NFL regular season was officially over.
Tuesday night, the Rams were given the OK to move to Los Angeles, and the Chargers were given the option to join them. The Raiders bowed out of the proceedings and will remain in Oakland.
No NFL franchise has moved since the Houston Oilers went to Tennessee in 1997. The Raiders and Rams both left Los Angeles after the 1994 season. The Rams had been in the LA area since 1946.
