Now here’s something interesting. Eric Grubman, who recently resigned as the NFL executive vice president, is reportedly looking into the possibility of moving a current NFL team to San Diego.
Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report dropped this little bombshell on Friday afternoon, noting nothing is imminent and that this contemplative probe has angered some people in the NFL.
One thing I'm hearing: Eric Grubman, with Goldman Sachs before joining the NFL as an exec, is exploring possibility of moving a CURRENT team to San Diego. Nothing imminent.
The fact Grubman has even contemplated this has angered some in the NFL.

It’s worth noting that Grubman is best known for orchestrating the relocation efforts of the St. Louis Rams, San Diego Chargers, and Oakland Raiders away from their home cities.
With that in mind, it’s easy to understand why some folks around the league might take umbrage with this exploratory effort to potentially move a team back to San Diego.
Before becoming an NFL executive, Grubman was a partner and co-head of the Energy Group at Goldman, Sachs & Co. from 1996-2000.
UPDATE: Grubman has since refuted this report
Eric Grubman tells me he's not involved in any situation regarding bringing an NFL team back to San Diego.
Hope that settles it.
