BBC Sport - NFL London franchise would be a great thing - Menelik Watson

NFL London franchise 'a great thing'

Oakland Raiders' offensive lineman Menelik Watson says the expansion of the NFL and a proposed franchise in London is "a great thing".

A study compiled by accountants Deloitte on Wednesday suggested a London-based NFL team could be worth more than £100m a year to the UK.

Speaking to the BBC's Chris Mitchell on Skype, Manchester-born Watson says he and his team-mates had "a great experience" in the UK in September despite being defeated 38-14 by the Miami Dolphins at Wembley.
