Roger Goodell: ‘A franchise in the UK is something we are not comfortable with’

NFL: International Series-NFL on Regent Street Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said he and the league isn’t comfortable relocating a team or starting a new franchise in London at a Sunday afternoon press conference before the 2017 Pro Bowl.

@Wiggle_Man was at the press conference and said the comment came after a Baltimore Ravens fan asked about the international series in the UK. Goodell, according to @Wiggle_Man, went out of his way to say the NFL isn’t going to be putting a team in London.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have long been rumored to move to St. Louis, Los Angeles, San Diego, London, and even the moon. But it ain’t happening.

See you in 2021, Jason La Canfora.
