Verizon Wireless and the NFL up to something BIG?

This could potentially be huge news for Verizon Wireless and the NFL.  A couple weeks ago we brought you the story about VZW making a push to bring their LTE services to 30 “NFL Cities” potentially for the holidays.  Well now we are hearing reports that the NFL has been in extensive talks with VZW to bring exclusive content to their Tablet offerings in the near future.  The NFL is talking about actually distributing games and much more content to these future devices, however none of them were named specifically.  Check out the links below and be sure to drop us a comment.  If you’re a fan of  “Big Red” and the NFL are you as excited as I am to hopefully see games and much more on our soon to be acquired tablets?

Ah, so now we understand Verizon’s intentions to hastily roll out LTE service to NFL cities. The NFL, which has sided with Sprint over the years when it comes to cellular distribution of content, is apparently talking to Big Red in order to get its prized content into even more hands. As the idea of watching NFL games on-the-go because more and more sensible, the league is apparently mulling the decision to distribute games (and potentially more) on the next big thing. You know, tablets. Brian Rolapp, the NFL’s senior vice president of media strategy, recently said the following: “The NFL will be on a tablet. It’s a question of what shape or form. We are currently talking to Verizon about it.” VZW declined to comment on the rumblings, but it’s really not a shocker — the carrier’s doing everything it can to get a live LTE network here in the States, and inking a deal with America’s most popular sporting league would obviously bring in boatloads of revenue. The real question is this: what tablet is the NFL eying, and if it’s not the Samsung Galaxy Tab, what’s Verizon’s second tablet going to be? Inquiring minds would love to know.
