Goodell: New draft format likely here to stay


Commissioner Roger Goodell sat down with NFL Network host Rich Eisen for an exclusive interview on Wednesday’s NFL Total Access.

During the discussion, Goodell talked about the new draft format and acknowledged that, “I’d be hard-pressed to think we won’t go with the two-night primetime start, and the three-day draft.”

Goodell also spoke about the possibility of holding the draft in other cities aside from New York.

“It’s on the table,” Goodell said.

Other topics covered include the possibility of the new postseason overtime rule being adopted for the regular season, player safety concerns and more.
