NFL Working To Find A Replacement For The Rams, Potentially Adding A Second London Game

The NFL will move forward with its plans to showcase professional football in London without the St. Louis Rams, who announced on Monday that they would cancel regular season games planned for the UK in 2013 and 2014. NFL Vice President of International Chris Parsons told SB Nation on Monday afternoon:

"We appreciate the Rams support for our international growth strategy. We are currently working to add a second game in the UK, potentially for the 2013 season, in response to the growth in popularity of our sport. We hope to finalize these plans in the months ahead."

The Rams and the NFL reached an agreement in the spring of 2012 to play one of their home games in the London in each of the next three seasons. Other teams, including the Jacksonville Jaguars, have expressed interest in playing an international game.

That plan hit a snag when the St. Louis Commission and Visitors Commission pointed to a conflict with the team's lease on the Edward Jones Dome. An October 2012 game against the Patriots will go forward as planned, after the Rams and CVC reached an agreement to work around the issue with the lease.
