NFL sources say the League is looking at an additional “Bridge Loan” in addition to the 300M it has already committed to project….

League would also give San Diego 2-Super Bowls in a 4-year span as collateral to help financing…

Report Rams Owner Stan Kroenke would redirect some of 650M-territorial fee he owes NFL, as a loan to San Diego…but would be given sole rights to LA market for at least 5-years…it would allow Kroenke to begin selling PSL-and corporate signage in LA market immediately.

Union Tribune is reporting San Diego remains willing to put 300M into pot for financing…San Diego State would contribute 100M…but County donation has been reduced to 75M…Chargers and NFL would contribute 650M as their share from initial proposal…Still an issue is that Spanos family is not putting any of its own money into project, but rather using PSL money and Stadium naming rights money from sponsors
