For the first time in two decades, the NFL's future in Los Angeles is out of the hands of analysts.
Instead, commissioner Roger Goodell and a six-member committee of owners have taken the reins on relocation efforts, according to Sam Farmer of the Los Angeles Times.
The committee will be reportedly be chaired by Pittsburgh's Art Rooney II and includes includes New England's Robert Kraft, Carolina's Jerry Richardson, Kansas City's Clark Hunt, Houston's Bob McNair, and the New York Giants' John Mara.

Goodell will lead the committee from here on out. It's a significant change; the NFL's commissioner hasn't taken such an active role since the Rams and Raiders left the city.
He also knows the requirements of this particular job. Goodell was the point man for Los Angeles football when his predecessor, Paul Tagliabue, was in power in 1995.
Goodell and his owner committee expect to be more successful than those efforts were 20 years ago. And their decision-making process could be expedited now that they're in command.
