The Los Angeles Chargers have finalized a deal to hold the first training camp after their move north in Costa Mesa.
Los Angeles Chargers finalize deal for training camp location
The Chargers announced their plans Tuesday night after the Orange County town approved the proposal in a city council vote.
The Chargers will train at Jack Hammett Sports Complex, which is only about two miles from the planned site of their regular-season base in Costa Mesa, California.
The team can use the facility for three to five weeks per year for up to 10 years. The Chargers agreed to make an estimated $1 million in improvements to the complex while paying $150,000 in annual rent.
The Los Angeles Rams held training camp last year at UC Irvine, about five miles away.

The Chargers hope L.A. is a permanent home, so why not offer fans a permanent option of their own Nick NFL jersey? The Chargers, in conjunction with the Shamrock Social Club, are offering free team-themed tattoos to anyone who comes into the famous West Hollywood tattoo studio between 1 p.m. and 1 a.m. on Tuesday.
The Chargers will foot the bill for the Bolts ink.
“It’s just one way to show our appreciation for the fans, and to let them know that we’re always thinking creatively about how they can put their hand up and say they love Philip Rivers jersey and the Chargers,” Jeffrey Pollack, a Chargers special advisor, told Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times.
In general, “It was free” is not the best reason for permanent body modification, but we’re not going to judge anyone who takes the Chargers up on this unusual offer. Hit us up if you go through with cheap Nike jersey.
After signing Russell Okung jersey to protect Philip Rivers’ blind side, the Bolts released veteran tackle King Dunlap, the team announced Monday. Good Morning Football’s Peter Schrager first reported Seahawks womens jersey news.
Dunlap was arrested last month on suspicion of violating a protective order. Signed to a four-year, $28 million extension in February of 2015, he was due to collect a $500,000 roster bonus on March 18.
Often banged up, the 31-year-old veteran started 46 of a possible 64 games in San Diego over the past four years.
Dunlap is the second offensive-line starter to be dumped by the Chargers in the past week. D.J. Fluker jersey was also released, opening a vacancy at right guard.
The veteran tackle market has been picked clean, leaving Dunlap and the oft-injured duo of Ryan Clady jersey and Andre Smith as the biggest names available.
