SAN DIEGO – The San Diego Chargers organization has applied to trademark "Los Angeles Chargers," the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.
Two days after National Football League owners voted to allow the Rams to relocate to Inglewood, Calif., the Chargers took steps to secure a new name, according to the newspaper. The two trademarks they submitted were "Los Angeles Chargers" and "LA Chargers."
The Times reported that Chargers president of business operations A.G. Spanos signed the application.
The Rams and Chargers released a joint statement Monday saying they were not going to release any details from their discussions.
“We have concluded our first meeting. We mutually have agreed not to publicly discuss details of this or any future meeting.”
