There is a chance that the Chargers could move to L.A. along with the Rams and the Raiders could relocate to San Diego. If that ever happened, Philip Rivers tells Darren Smith of Mighty 1090 AM that he might lose his lunch.
According to media reports suspended Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon has applied to the NFL for reinstatement.
Gordon was banned for a year in February for multiple violations of the league’s substance abuse policy. He has asked Commissioner Roger Goodell to allow him back.
Gordan was initially suspended by the league for “at least one year” and did not play at all in 2015. His application for reinstatement opens the possibility that he will play in 2016.

NFL owners voted on Tuesday for two franchises, the St. Louis Rams and the San Diego Chargers (should they choose to exercise their option), to relocate to Los Angeles. If the Chargers decide to stay in San Diego then the Oakland Raiders will have the chance to return to LA.
The Rams played in the Los Angeles area from 1946-94 before moving to St. Louis. The Raiders also left Los Angeles after the 1994 season.
This was a move all about money. Yes Rams owner Stan Kroenke will spend a ton of money to build a state of the art stadium in Inglewood, but he sees the payoff as being much greater than if he had stayed in St. Louis.

The NFL’s system for ordering the draft was tweaked a few years ago when they decided to have all of the teams that did not make the playoffs occupy the first 20 spots and then line up the playoff teams by 1) how far they advanced in the playoffs and 2) their regular season record.
Among the teams that were eliminated this weekend in the wild card round, both the Texans and Redskins were 9-7 while the Vikings were 10-6 and the Bengals were 12-4. The Redskins will pick over the Texans in the first round because they had a weaker strength of schedule.
“I’m excited to have Rob join our staff, and I think he will be a great asset for our defense,” Rex Ryan said in a statement. “He has a tremendous working knowledge of our schemes, and I look forward to his input.”
The Ryan brothers have not worked on the same staff since 1995, when both were assistants with the Arizona Cardinals under their father, Buddy Ryan.
