Morning Links: L.A. in play for Rams?

SAN DIEGO -- Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times reports that St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke purchased 60 acres of land next to Hollywood Park in Los Angeles that could be used to build an NFL stadium.

The Rams are in the midst of a push to get a new stadium built in St. Louis, but if things fall through could look to move back to their former home in Los Angeles.

The San Diego Chargers also have been viewed as a possibility to move back to Los Angeles, but for now the Spanos family appears focused on getting a new stadium built for the Chargers in San Diego.

Farmer reports that this is the first time an NFL owner has bought a piece of land in the L.A. area capable of holding an NFL stadium. However, Farmer also notes that 60 acres is too small a parcel of land to accommodate a stadium and required parking.

The Sporting News named San Diego Chargers receiver Keenan Allen rookie of the year.

Kevin Acee of U-T San Diego writes that former Chargers offensive lineman Louis Vasquez is at home with the Broncos.

Tom Krasovic of U-T San Diego ranks safety Marcus Gilchrist as the No. 15 Charger from the 2013 season.

The number of concussions in the NFL dropped 13 percent from 2012 to 2013 according to league data released this week.
