With both London games already sold out this season, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has visions of expanding the league's overseas schedule in the future.
The league's goal is to eventually place an NFL team in London. Now that many English Premier League teams have upgraded their stadiums, football games can be played at other venues beyond Wembley Stadium. As London mayor Boris Johnson likes to point out, the $780 million stadium constructed for the 2012 Olympics does not have a permanent tenant.
Other highlights from Goodell's appearance, per Hubbuch:
» The NFL will not return to Los Angeles until the "right stadium situation" develops. In the meantime, other teams can continue to wield the possibility of moving to Los Angeles as leverage for their own stadium deals.
» The NFL welcomes a bigger presence from Jay-Z and his Roc Nation Sports agency "as long as he goes through the proper channels."
