Keenan Allen: 'The fans got what they wanted; now let's see sellouts'

San Diego Chargers owner Dean Spanos announced in a statement on Friday that the team will remain in San Diego for at least the 2016 season. The team does have an agreement to move with the Rams to their Inglewood stadium for 2017, but Spanos' statement maintained that his "focus is on San Diego."

Now that the team is staying put, star wide receiver Keenan Allen has a request for the fans: show up to some games.

The Chargers only had an attendance rate of 94.6 percent, which was 22nd in the NFL, and their home-field advantage was all but nonexistent this season. Opposing fans showed up in droves every week, and in one home game, the Chargers even had to go to a silent snap count.

With (slightly) more certainty about the Chargers' future in San Diego, maybe the stadium will go back to being packed with Chargers fans rather than the opposition.

Keenan Allen is hoping more Chargers fans show up to games. (USATSI)
