The NFL is interested in promoting its product overseas, and there has been a series of games in London in recent years, with the Rams slated to play a game in each of the next three seasons in the United Kingdom. 

Could there be a team in London on a permanent basis? Giants defensive end Osi Umenyiora, the only person in the NFL who was born in London, thinks it's a great idea. 

 

"That would be awesome," Umenyiora said today. "If there is a permanent team in London, I think the English people will embrace it eventually. I think it will be a great thing for the NFL.”
