By Bill Williamson
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has let NFL teams know that the league is making process toward going to back Los Angeles, according to the Los Angeles Times. The Chargers and the Raiders are among the potential candidates to relocate to Los Angeles.
- Oakland receiver Darrius Heyward-Bey is facing a July 23 trial for a drunken driving charge stemming from an April incident. If convicted, he could face NFL discipline.
- Many NFL types gathered in Tennessee on Friday to pay tribute to former Denver assistant coach Mike Heimerdinger. He died of cancer last fall. He was a well-respected member of the Broncos’ Super Bowl winning staffs in the late 1990s and he did a stint as offensive coordinator late in the Mike Shanahan days in Denver.
- The Chargers will have 10 training camp practices open to the public.
- Denver defensive tackle Ben Garland knows firsthand the devastation the Colorado wild fires are causing.
