NFL ‘floated’ idea of Toronto expansion at owners’ meeting

3 Down Nation

The NFL may be making a return to Toronto, and this time it might be a little more permanent.

The owners from North America’s most powerful sporting entity met in New York at the end of October to discuss league issues and according to NFL insider Benjamin Allbright, they turned their eyes north when discussing growth.

“I know one of the things that was floated out a the owners’ meeting recently was the potential for expansion. They know they want to get to 18 games here in a season soon and having 36 teams sort of gives you a more round number, since 18 is half of 36, with regard to scheduling,” Allbright said on ESPN radio in St. Louis earlier this month.
