NFL Reaches Agreement to Return to L.A.

Yahoo! News (article)

he NFL and city officials have reached a preliminary agreement on terms to bring a team back to the Los Angeles Coliseum. Commissioner Paul Tagliabue made the announcement Thursday on the steps of City Hall. But he didn't identify a potential tenant or speculate when Los Angeles might get the team.
He also spoke positively about a team playing at a facility proposed for the Angel Stadium parking lot in Anaheim and didn't rule out the Rose Bowl in Pasadena as a possible home field, either.

So L.A. looks like they will be getting a team, possibly two. This is how will it work out (Or at least how I see it happening):
Saints and Cardinals move to LA, New Orleans will be guaranteed an expansion spot in the near future. The new New Orleans team will expand with either Mexico City or San Antonio, but San Antonio will win out in the end, and then there will be a second round of expansions to put a team back in Arizona and one down in Mexico City. Leaving the NFL with 36 teams by 2012.

You heard it here first.
