Goodell: London further along than year ago

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) -- NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says the possibility of a future franchise in London is ''further down the road'' than it was a year ago at this time.

During his state of the league address on Friday, Goodell says the fact the NFL has added a third game for 2014 and that all three games have already sold out is a strong sign of the growing interest in the United Kingdom.

He says the more the league offers to the UK, the more the fans want.

Goodell says he's not sure where the process goes now, but the league plans to continue investing in the marketplace.
