The San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders have hired former San Francisco 49ers President Carmen Policy to spearhead the next stages in their push to build a joint $1.7 billion stadium in the Los Angeles area.

Policy is expected to speak to NFL owners about the Carson stadium project at their meetings this week in San Francisco, the city where he led the front office of the 49ers in their championship heyday in the 1980s and 1990s.

He hasn't been involved in the league since 2004, when he sold a minority ownership stake in the Cleveland Browns.

Policy's hiring was reported by the Los Angeles Times and Daily News, and he told the newspapers that though he's been gone for a decade he still understands the dynamics of the NFL.
