NFL’s Goodell Says No Plans to Expand Soon

Sorry, Los Angeles. The only NFL expansion happening anytime soon is to next season’s schedule of Thursday night games.

During his annual Super Bowl news conference, Commissioner Roger Goodell said Friday that adding to the league’s 32 teams “has not been on our agenda” and that he doesn’t “see that in the foreseeable future.”

He also said the NFL wants “to keep our teams where they are.”

Every club will appear on prime-time TV in 2012, thanks in part to new Thursday games that now will be scheduled from Week 2 through Week 15. All but Week 12 will be on the NFL Network.

Among other topics Goodell addressed: The NFL is trying to learn more about preventing and treating concussions, and more international games, including in Mexico.
