With the Super Bowl decided, the biggest story of the off season may be just how many teams end up playing in Los Angeles in 2016. After rampant speculation and a billion-dollar game of musical chairs involving proposed lavish stadiums in Inglewood and Carson, California, respectively, we know for sure that the St. Louis Rams are coming back to Los Angeles after first exiting Southern California in 1995 for a play in the Midwest market.

Many believe that either the San Diego Chargers or Oakland Raiders will join the newly-minted LA Rams to share the stadium in Inglewood, in a revenue split similar to the New York Giants and New York Jets’ arrangement at MetLife Stadium.

While the new NFL year doesn’t officially start until March 9, we couldn’t help but imagine what the uniforms might look like for the LA Rams – who will definitely be in the City of Angels in 2016 – as well as the Oakland Raiders whose rabid fan base would surely follow them south.

Enlisting the help of Barcelona-based sports apparel designer, Nerea Palacios, the uniforms honor the past – in terms of color schemes and logos – while also adding new flair onto sleeves and helmets, to reflect each team’s change of city.
