Statement from Rams COO Kevin Demoff on the Super Bowl in Los Angeles being moved to 2022: "As work continues on the transformational sports and entertainment district being built at Hollywood Park, we are looking forward to moments such as a grand opening during the Summer of 2020 and the Super Bowl's return to Los Angeles after nearly three decades. In the past week, we have worked with the NFL on the resolution that was presented today and are supportive of the NFL Owners' decision to play Super Bowl LV in Tampa and to have Los Angeles host Super Bowl LVI in 2022. Over the next 90 days, we will continue to work with our partners across the Los Angeles region, including the Chargers, to deliver the elements promised in the bid that was approved last year."

I'm told that seventh-round draft pick Stevie Tu'ikolovatu has agreed to terms with the Bucs on his rookie contract and will sign later today. That's two down, four to go for Bucs rookies.

The league has unanimously passed moving Los Angeles' Super Bowl back a year, from 2021 to 2022, according to multiple reports. Tampa now gets it in February 2021. Near-record rainfall in L.A. pushed the opening of the $2.6 billion Rams/Chargers stadium in Inglewood back a year. It will now open in the summer of 2020, and it would've been a little too risky to have a Super Bowl so close to the target date of a new stadium. Have to think Rams and Chargers are just fine with this.
