Last night the NFL's LA relocation committee met to go over their recommendation prior to today when they are to make that recommendation to the rest of the NFL owners. According to multiple reports, their expected to recommend the Raiders and Chargers in their Carson project.

The recent addition of Disney CEO Bob Iger is said to have played a major part in convincing the LA committee to favor the Carson project over the Inglewood project.

Owners on the 6-person committee are Clark Hunt (Chiefs), Robert Kraft (Patriots), John Mara (Giants), Bob McNair (Texans), Jerry Richardson (Panthers) and Art Rooney (Steelers).

On the docket for today will be the Raiders/Chargers presentation made by Iger, followed by the Rams presentation which will be made by Rams owner Stan Kroenke. Then the LA committee will make their recommendation. Jerry Jones is also expected to push for his idea of the Rams and Chargers teaming up in Inglewood.

Ultimately, it will still be up to the 32 owners to decide which project/teams are approved. That vote is expected to occur Wednesday with at least 24 votes required for approval.
