NFL Could Be Headed North

Canadian Football League commissioner Mark Cohon thinks all signs point to the NFL putting a franchise in Toronto.

It marks the first time the CFL has made a definitive statement on the possibility. Cohon made the remarks in his first state of the league news conference.

Cohon points to the recent move by the Buffalo Bills to play regular-season games in Toronto starting next year and the indication by Bills owner Ralph Wilson that his estate will sell the team when he dies. The commissioner also noted that there are a number of powerful Canadians interested in having a team in Toronto.

Cohon says he hopes if the NFL does move into Toronto it will do so in partnership with the CFL.
