One team or two teams in Los Angeles? Carson or Inglewood?

These questions remain unanswered after the Owners’ Meetings.

“It’s hard to see one of the proposals as getting 24 votes,” Colts owner Jim Irsay said on Wednesday, via “I don’t think we’re extremely close right now.”

Irsay did say their was a preference among the owners for two teams in Los Angeles.

“There’s a stronger feeling, probably, toward two,” Irsay said via CBS Sports. “I don’t think anyone is averse to two.”

Nonetheless, Goodell did not rule out postponement of a decision beyond the January meeting in Houston. Many reports speculated delaying a decision until May or March, before Wednesday’s meeting.

In his press conference, Goodell said the league does not have applications for relocation. He also said teams can not officially file relocation papers until Jan. 4.

Therefore, much remains in the air regarding the NFL’s move to Los Angeles.
