Sam Famer of the Los Angeles Times was part of a small group that talked to Dallas owner Jerry Jones at Cowboys camp in Oxnard, Calif., on Monday.

Speaking about the potential of the NFL returning to L.A., Jones said he thinks it could happen out of some pending ownership changes.

"We haven't had much movement in ownership," Jones said. "I think we might see in the near term some movement in two, possibly three situations. That might start the ball rolling."

Then Farmer discussed a list of potential movers, and of course, it included Jacksonville.

Although Jones declined to identify the teams he was referring to, there has been recent talk of NFL owners in St. Louis and Jacksonville selling all or part of their teams. There also could be an ownership change in Pittsburgh, but Jones made it clear he wasn't talking about that situation.

While Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver vehemently denied a recent report he was in negotiations to sell the team, a team official I talked with said it's inevitable that every time there is any talk of a move the same handful of teams will get listed and the Jags will be one of them.

It's a fact of life they've come to deal with, and I certainly don't think it's weighing on Fred Taylor or John Henderson during training camp as the Jags prepare for what a lot of people are expecting to be a big season.
