SAN DIEGO – The Chargers organization met with the Rams Monday to discuss details about National Football League relocation to Los Angeles.

Chargers attorney Mark Fabiani confirmed the meeting, but remained tight-lipped about what was discussed.

“We have concluded our first meeting. We mutually have agreed not to publicly discuss details of this or any future meeting.”

Chargers owner Dean Spanos spoke by phone last Thursday with San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer and county Supervisor Ron Roberts in what a team spokesman characterized as “cordial” conversations.

At a news conference Tuesday — after National Football League owners shot down Spanos’ plan to build a stadium in Carson, in Los Angeles County, but gave him a one-year option to join the Rams in Inglewood — Faulconer said he called Spanos and left him a message.

Faulconer said the developments at an NFL owners meeting in Houston gave the city and the Chargers “an opportunity for a fresh start” for efforts to keep the team in San Diego.

Spanos has said he would take some time to mull over his options.

According to NFL insider Jason La Canfora, the Chargers are focused on getting the deal done in Los Angeles.
