L.A. stadium clears hurdle; 49ers could be targeted

Jan 21, 2009 at 7:27 AM--


Pro Football Talk seems to think that the San Francisco 49ers could be one of the teams targeted by the city of Los Angeles for a possible move.

While the team struggles to get its own stadium deal done in Santa Clara, the ballot initiative that would clear the way for $150 million in infrastructure improvements relating to a new NFL stadium in the City of Industry, just outside Los Angeles, passed overwhelmingly on Tuesday.

PFT also believes that the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, St. Louis Rams, and maybe even the Detroit Lions could be targets as well.

"It's new turf, new field turf. It's always pretty tricky to play on until it's nice and -- not beat up, but nice and worn down and

San Francisco will likely be without its starting quarterback and top two running backs on Sunday when the team returns to MetLife Stadium to play the New York Giants.
