Adam Schefter has something of a negative reputation to a small contingent of Buffalo Bills fans, to put it mildly. Even those fans are currently hopeful that Schefter's latest report turns out to be true.

As relayed by Rotoworld's Evan Silva, Schefter reported on ESPN today - citing "informed knowledgeable people" - that the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders are the two NFL teams most likely to relocate to Los Angeles (perhaps due to proximity and stadium issues). Other teams like the Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars and Minnesota Vikings have been mentioned as possible L.A. teams, as well.

By now, Bills fans are universally aware of the fact that the Bills have long (and frequently) linked to L.A. simply because of the age of team owner Ralph Wilson, who has also said that when he passes away, the team will be sold to the highest bidder - regardless of his intentions to keep the team in Western New York. Schefter's report hardly removes the Bills from the race, to be sure, but it's good news nonetheless.
