The Chargers and Rams have an agreement on the parameters of deal to share a stadium in Inglewood, California, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora reports. Chargers chairman Dean Spanos announced Friday that his team will play the 2016 season in San Diego while focusing on a long-term solution to remain in the city, but he also acknowledged that the Chargers have an agreement in place with the Rams to move to Inglewood should things not work out in San Diego.

Earlier this month, Spanos didn't tip his hand either way about playing in San Diego or Los Angeles in 2016.
"I'm going to look at all our options," he said at the time. "I'm going to take a little bit of time here. We do have some options. It's very difficult to say right now."
Though the Chargers are staying put for next season, they will still be able to move to L.A. in '17. Specifically, the NFL has given the team a final deadline of Jan. 15, 2017, to make an L.A. decision. Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that if the Chargers get a stadium initiative approved this year, that deadline could be extended to 2018 to allow for legal challenges, if necessary.
Whatever happens, the Inglewood stadium isn't set to open until 2019.
