The San Diego Chargers announced Tuesday that the team will play in Qualcomm Stadium next season, declining again to exercise an escape clause in its stadium lease with the city.

"Today, the Chargers are making the same announcement that the team has made each year since 2007: The team will not be exercising the lease- termination clause and will keep working to find a publicly acceptable way to build a Super Bowl-quality stadium in San Diego," said Mark Fabiani, special counsel to the team's president. "Calendar year 2015 will constitute the team's 14th year of work on a San Diego stadium solution."

The Chargers have unsuccessfully searched around San Diego County for a suitable site for a new place to play instead of aging Qualcomm Stadium.

Numerous proposals have been floated but none have withheld scrutiny. Rumors have come and gone over the years that the team would move to Los Angeles.

The Chargers have a window each year to announce whether the escape clause will be exercised.
