Oakland Raiders have a very good chance of moving to San Diego

It has already been a monumental off-season in the NFL for three teams in particular as the St Louis Rams are officially no more.

The return of the Los Angeles Rams has been welcomed by most but the fates of the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders is still to be settled.

More moves

The Chargers still have the first option to move to LA with the Rams but have yet to make their decision to leave San Diego.

Should the Chargers follow the Rams to LA, the future of the Raiders also becomes a lot less clear as they could also be set to depart their current home.

Oakland have made it no secret that they want to leave their current surroundings but could a move to replace the Chargers be on the cards?

A report published in the Los Angeles Daily News has claimed that should the Chargers make the move to LA, there is a "very real possibility" that Oakland will relocate to San Diego.

It is very probable that the Chargers will make the move north to LA and with the Raiders having a conflict with the city of Oakland, a move may be more appealing to them.

The Raiders are desperate for their own stadium as oppose to their current situation where they share the Oakland Coliseum with MLB's Oakland Athletics.

Assuming the Chargers do relocate to LA, it will leave a big NFL fan base without a team and the league will be eager to capitalise on that.

Trading Philip Rivers for Derek Carr, Keenan Allen for Amari Cooper, the people of San Diego could be in for a big change in their culture.

A whole new league?

The move out West for the Rams is a big one and it changes the dynamic in the NFL as the second biggest fanbase in the country now has it's own team.

LA could end up with two teams before the start of the 2016 season and if the Raiders leave Oakland, it will be interesting to see where the fans support goes.
