ATLANTA, GEORGIA - NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL owners are weighing in on the future of the Bills now that the franchise is about to be sold.
At the NFL Owners Spring Meeting in Atlanta, Goodell told 2 On Your Side's Adam Benigni he supports Buffalo as an NFL market, but says a new stadium is key to keeping the team in Western New York.
New York Jets Owner Woody Johnson and Atlanta Falcons Owner Arthur Blank also were supportive of Buffalo.
"I think it's a great market. They have very, very loyal fans. Buffalo is doing better now. The business community is pretty good. So, I think it's gonna be a vibrant NFL community for a long time to come," said Johnson.
Blank added "I think it's important for the NFL to keep cities like Buffalo and Green Bay and other midsize cities included in our franchises. So I would hope, I think that's gonna be a major factor in who the organization elects to sell to."
Goodell, Blank, and Johnson's comments came one day after Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones spoke with Benigni about the Bills, Bon Jovi, and Toronto's future as an NFL market.
