Pittsburgh Steelers co-owner and president Art Rooney II says that he thinks there will be at least one NFL team, maybe two, in Los Angeles within the next 10 years.
According to the report, Rooney believes the NFL has a shot to land two franchise in L.A.
Rooney is not the first owner to be optimistic about the prospects of a new NFL team in L.A. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones recently said that within the next year, he thinks we'll see proof that there will be a team there within the next five years.
The NFL has looked into various ways to finance a league-built stadium in Los Angeles, including the idea of selling personal seat licenses for the Super Bowl.
In July, commissioner Roger Goodell announced that the 2015 NFL draft will be held in either L.A. or Chicago.
