Super Bowl Sites, Draft, Stadium Issues Highlight Owners Meetings

(Boston, MA) -- Super Bowl sites, the draft and stadium issues are highlighting the NFL owners meetings in Boston, but commissioner Roger Goodell says the league also has the tornado victims in Oklahoma on its mind.

The league awarded Super Bowl 50 to San Francisco and Super Bowl 51 to Houston. Meanwhile, the draft will be pushed back to May next year due to a scheduling conflict with New York's Radio City Music Hall.  Other cities will be considered in the future. The Pro Bowl will be played in Hawaii next year, but captains could be appointed to pick teams. The NFL has also approved funding to help with construction for a new stadium in Atlanta as well as renovations in Philadelphia and Carolina. The league is also working in tandem with Microsoft to enhance the fan experience both at home and at the stadiums.
