Kansas City Chiefs owner is on the NFL's Los Angeles committee

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL is looking into the possibility of moving a team (or two) back to Los Angeles and Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt has been involved with that. The league has formed a Los Angeles committee, according to the LA Times, as they gather information on a team (or two) possibly moving to Los Angeles.

The LA Times reports that Hunt is one of the NFL owners involved in the process.

In the memo, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced the forming of the "Committee on Los Angeles Opportunities," consisting of owners Clark Hunt of Kansas City, Robert Kraft of New England, John Mara of the New York Giants, Bob McNair of Houston, Jerry Richardson of Carolina and Art Rooney of Pittsburgh.

This list of very powerful owners will help with the next Los Angeles NFL team. It's widely believed the St. Louis Rams, San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders are at the top of the list of teams to possibly move to LA.

The LA Times report quotes a memo sent to NFL teams about this committee:

The newly formed committee will "evaluate the various stadium options available in Los Angeles, oversee the application of the relocation guidelines in the event that one or more clubs seek to move to Los Angeles, ensure proper coordination with other standing committees ... and confirm that all steps taken in Los Angeles are consistent with the Constitution and Bylaws and NFL policies."

I do not envy the situation fans of the Rams, Chargers and Raiders find themselves in. It's an ugly business when NFL owners are unhappy with their stadium situation (it's one of those reminders that this is a business). I'll be curious to see if the Chiefs will soon have an AFC West rival in LA.
