AROUND THE WEB:

— The city of St. Louis has filed a lawsuit against the NFL and all 32 teams and their owners claiming they illegally approved the relocation of the Rams from St. Louis to Los Angeles in 2016.

The suit was filed on Wednesday in St. Louis Circuit Court and the city is seeking damages and profit restitution for the past 15 months since the move.

The suit claims St. Louis has lost $1.85 million to $3.5 million per year in ticket tax revenue, plus $7.5 million in property tax and $1.4 million in sales tax revenue and “millions” in earning taxes.

It also claims the league ignored bylaws in the move and is allowing it despite failing to “satisfy the obligations imposed by the League’s relocation rules” and the relocation “was not supported by the required statement of reasons or the adopted relocation standards.”

In addition, the suit claims the Rams and the team’s owner Stan Kroenke “made false statements regarding the team’s intent to engage in good faith negotiations” with the city of St. Louis.

The entire lawsuit document can be found here.

Report: Rams have discussed bringing Peyton Manning to LA next season 02.03.16 at 12:01 pm ET

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Rams have discussed the possibility of bringing Peyton Manning to Los Angeles next season. While many suspect Manning will retire after this year, if he does give it a go in 2016 he apparently already is drawing interest outside of Denver.

Writes Schefter: Manning still must decide whether he wants to play again, and the Rams still are formulating their quarterback plans. But they are monitoring the Manning situation, per a source, which is a sign that the Broncos quarterback could have options next season.

It also sets up the possibility — even if it is remote — that Manning could finish his career in Southern California just as former Colts quarterback Johnny Unitas did with the San Diego Chargers in 1973 and former New York Jets quarterback Joe Namath did with Los Angeles Rams in 1977.

The Rams quarterbacks entering 2016 are Case Keenum, Nick Foles and Sean Mannion. Needless to say, if Manning were to sign with the Rams he would be stepping right into a starting role with the team.

While Manning recently told Bill Belichick that this could be his “last rodeo,” it remains to be seen if he will give it one more shot next season.
