The league has said in the past that it will consider alternatives to Radio City Music Hall, including venues in other cities.
“We’re looking at the potential of moving out of New York,” Goodell explained. “Radio City’s been a great place for us, but there are a lot of cities that are interested in having us in the future, and we’re going to look at that.”
