NFL says no truth to report of selling a piece of NFL Network

The report that CBS could buy a piece of NFL Network is being denied by the league.

Shortly after we posted an item on a report that CBS and the NFL were in talks for CBS to become a co-owner of NFL Network, we heard from the league office saying that the report is incorrect.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told PFT the report is “Wrong. Not true.”

CBS has become the NFL’s biggest broadcast partner by adding the Thursday Night Football package to its already existing package of Sunday afternoon games. But the league and CBS aren’t becoming partners on NFL Network.
