Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel wants the Windy City to host the Super Bowl and the NFL Draft.
“I would say that there are two things in pro football I would love to see in Chicago, either one of them or both: the NFL Draft and the Super Bowl,” Emanuel told the Chicago Tribune last week. “They have different advantages for the city given that we have neither one, both would be great attractions for the city to bring national attention. We’ll work on both. There’s something to the draft and there’s something to the Super Bowl. I compliment the NFL for deciding to change to cold-weather cities.”
As CBS Sports notes, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has suggested that he may be open to holding the NFL Draft in other cities after it is held at Radio City Music Hall this year.
