Dominik: Bucs not moving to London

With the Tampa Bay Buccaneers currently in London and the NFL’s recent passage of a resolution to continue holding games there, there has been some speculation the Bucs could relocate there permanently.

General manager Mark Dominik shot that theory down Friday morning.

"This team is never going to relocate from Tampa and go to London,'' Dominik said. "We're the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.’’

I can understand the speculation. The Glazers own the majority of Manchester United, and the Bucs don't have a great following like the awesome New Orleans Saints do. And this is the second game in London for the Bucs as well.

That said, I don't think that the NFL will ever place an NFL team in Europe. They would try to put a team in Canada before putting a team on the other side of the planet.

By the way, why isn't the NFL still having games played in Mexico? That experiment seemed to go well.
