ST. LOUIS (AP) - Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon is planning to discuss the future of the St. Louis Rams during a teleconference Wednesday.

Nixon plans to speak with reporters about what his office calls the future of the NFL in St. Louis. No specific details have been released.

The Rams' lease with the Edward Jones Dome ends after this season, and owner Stan Kroenke has been non-committal about what the future holds. There is speculation that Kroenke could move the team to Los Angeles as early as the 2015 season.

The Rams are unhappy with the dome, and bringing it up to the standards of modern NFL stadiums would cost hundreds of millions of dollars.
