NFL spokesman Michael Signora referred to the AS.com report that the league could play five regular-season games in Mexico as “premature.”
“We are pleased with the growth in fan demand and the increased partner support we have enjoyed in recent years,” Signora said, via Pro Football Talk. “With this in mind, we are actively assessing the opportunity to play games in Mexico. We have visited several stadiums in recent months, and are analyzing what needs to be done to bring games to Mexico.
“It is premature to comment specifically as to when this will happen, let alone how many, if any, games might be played.”
