Goodell: Bills need new stadium

Updated: Thursday, May 8 2014, 07:56 AM EDT

New York (AP) -- NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said he believes the Buffalo Bills will require a new stadium to remain viable in Western New York.

In calling the Bills recently negotiated 10-year lease agreement a "short-term solution," Goodell said a new stadium would be the next step in finding "the right long-term solution."
Goodell spoke Wednesday during a pre-NFL draft event in New York City.

The Bills' long-term future is uncertain after owner Ralph Wilson died in March. The Bills will be put up for sale, opening the possibility of a new owner eventually relocating the franchise.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo has already recognized the likelihood of the Bills needing a new stadium.

The state has hired an architectural firm to identify sites that could serve as the team's new home.
