Apparently Los Angeles developers haven't been told to not put the cart before the horse.

Yet that's exactly what AEG, which owns the "entertainment campus" L.A. Live and the Staples Center arena, appears to be doing with its proposed downtown NFL stadium, possible designs of which were unveiled Wednesday.

Once a final design is chosen within the next month, the next item on the firm's checklist would presumably be to find a team to play in the stadium. The City of Angels hasn't been home to a professional football team since 1995 when the Raiders left for Oakland, Calif., and the Rams went to St. Louis.

At the design unveiling, Tim Romani, president of the project management firm ICON Venue Group, said AEG expects to lure a team to Los Angeles within the next three months.
