The NBA might be moving to selling ad space on jerseys but that doesn’t mean the NFL will take the leap.

Although the NFL now rents ad space on practice jerseys, commissioner Roger Goodell said that is not in the works with game uniforms, according to Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press. Goodell made his comments Thursday in a visit to Lions training camp.

It’s not something that’s actively being considered in the NFL,” Goodell said. “We like the look that we have on the field. We have a very limited number of partners on our field in general, much less on the uniform, and we think that’s right for the NFL.”

It will be interesting when Goodell and the NFL are prepared to rule on some discipline issues for the Lions, particularly the one involving defensive tackle Nick Fairley, who was arrested twice in the offseason.
