Jerry Jones: I’m ‘very much for’ an NFL team in London

As the NFL continues to explore plunking a franchise across the pond, Jerry Jones has come out and backed the idea.

In an interview with Sky Sports, the Cowboys owner said it’s “very possible” the league adds a London-based team, and he’s “very much for it.”

The Cowboys will take on the Jaguars next season as the NFL continues its yearly tradition of hosting regular season games at London’s Wembley Stadium. Jones believes it’s a way of measuring international fan support and possible precursor to expansion.

“These games will be a good indication of the type of support that we could have there but London is one of the few cities outside of the United States that would be a great city internationally for the NFL,” he said.

Jones may be criticized at times, but there are few owners around who hold more clout. If he, like Roger Goodell, feels a team in London would further line the NFL’s multi-billion dollar pockets, then it simply becomes a matter of when — not if.
