JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- The Jaguars continue to make the short list of NFL teams considered viable candidates for relocation to Los Angeles.
That city has two groups competing to develop a stadium there, with the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell recently spelling out ground rules for any team interested in moving.
In a memo, the commissioner said any relocation would be a league decision and not an owner's decision. The letter also told teams there would be a 45-day window starting on January 1 for teams to apply for relocation. Another condition of application is that the team must prove it exhausted all avenues with its home city.
Jags owner Shad Khan has said he has no interest in moving. On Tuesday, a team spokesperson reaffirmed that nothing has changed.
Mayor Alvin Brown says he is not worried.
"Shad Khan believes in this city, invested in this city," said Brown.
The Jags, along with the San Diego Chargers, Oakland Raiders and the St. Louis Rams are mentioned as candidates for a move.
