We're sorry. This audio clip is no longer available. A transcript has been made available.

The San Diego Chargers announced on Friday that they will stay and play at Qualcomm stadium for the 2016 NFL season.

In a letter addressed to Chargers fans, team owner Dean Spanos said he wants to work on getting a new stadium built in San Diego. The team also announced it has reached an agreement in principle with the Rams to join them at a new stadium in the Los Angeles suburb of Inglewood.

So which is it? Are San Diego fans being played again?

“My guess is this is going to go back almost to square one, and I think everything’s on the table as far as what the options are,” Jim Steeg, a former NFL and Chargers executive, told KPBS Midday Edition on Monday. “I think there’s enough money to get this done, it’s just a matter of everybody getting behind one issue there.”

Jay Paris, sports columnist for Mighty 1090, said he’s skeptical, adding that the Chargers “have one foot out the door.”
