Interesting: NFL announces that each NFC South team gets an extra 11th practice squad spot for an international player who cant be activated

Apparently there was a random draw and 4 players (3 UK, 1 Germany) will be added to the NFC South teams, not eligible to roster addition during the season.

This to me says the NFL is not giving up on the overseas connection anytime soon.

Brady is going to Asia, via Under Armour to talk football, etc., expansion won't go away.
Wow! it's like they're trying to expand their market to the other 95% of the world's population and pick up a few 100 million new customers.

Bist du bereit für einen Fußball?

Patriots Raiders game will be held in Mexico City next Sunday but personally I'm not a fan of Mexico City games.

Regarding London Games, Kenny Britt says he hates playing in London. Good for him.

Terry Bradshaw also hates the idea of teams traveling to London.

Even the Baltimore Ravens say they want nothing to do with London games.

Even Todd Gurley says that the NFL needs to stop playing games in London.

Players can say it all they want, probably not going to go away any time soon. Teams have to deal with it.

I'm still waiting for Packers to play in London and hoping it happens!

You're right, the London games aren't going anywhere and it is all about money. And Susan, chances are, the Packers might not play in London or Mexico City.

Probably not Mexico City but Mark Murphy keeps hoping for London! I'm with him on that thought!

Some truth in it, took the ship 7 days to cross from Canaries to Florida, turning clock back most nights and I'm still trying to not wake up at 3 or 4 a.m.!

I voted yes as most likely the NFL will expand to foreign lands in the future. Mexico City and/or London wouldn't be to far fetched.
