St. Louis Rams Dome Lease Situation 'Not Setting Off Alarm Bells' With NFL

The NFL is not worried about the St. Louis Rams lease situation. Should they be?

NFL general counsel and executive vice president for labor weighed in on the St. Louis Rams stadium lease negotiations on Friday, in the wake of a high-level pow wow in Minnesota to salvage a stadium deal there.

Pash did not sound at all alarmed about the situation with the Edward Jones Dome. That should come as no surprise since the team is very early in the process.

According to Reid Laymance of the Post-Dispatch, Pash said that the situation was "not setting off alarm bells." He added that he hopes the result was a "better facility for fans and team" and reiterated the city's place as an NFL city.

Essentially, he said nothing that the league has not said already. As I said earlier this morning, the NFL is getting involved in the Minnesota situation because it's at a critical, and late, stage in the game. The Rams would not be at a similar point until 2015, when the "top tier" clause goes into effect and lets them out of their lease.
