Chargers chairman Dean Spanos expressed appreciation to those who signed petitions. "We gathered more than 110,000 signatures in less than six weeks, an extraordinary result that demonstrates the high level of community interest in a new multi-use stadium and convention center facility downtown," Spanos said.

Hayward has nine career interceptions. In 2014, he tied for the Packers’ team lead in interceptions, while tying for seventh in the NFL in total takeaways and ranking eighth in interception return yards. As a rookie in 2012, Hayward led the team and tied for fifth in the NFL with six picks, while also pacing the squad with 25 passes defensed. His six interceptions led all NFL rookies and they were the most by a Packers rookie since 1999.

It’s a long shot by most accounts right now. The initiative is expected to face significant opposition, including from hoteliers. Last year, the team presented polling data to the NFL that showed about 65% disapproval of public funding for a new stadium in San Diego, the team’s home since 1961.
