League shopping Thursday night rights
SEATTLE (AP) - A person with knowledge of the bidding process tells The Associated Press that all four of the NFL's network partners have bid on the Thursday night television package. The league has used its NFL Network to televise the games, but recently put up the 13-game series for bids. It received them from NBC, Fox, CBS and ESPN.
The NFL also has expressed a desire to simulcast the games on NFL Network.
