Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel has said in the past that he wants a Super Bowl at Soldier Field. He still does. And he also wants the NFL draft in Chicago.

Emanuel’s spokesman says the mayor and the commissioner talked recently and discussed having both NFL events in Chicago.

“The mayor and Roger Goodell spoke last week on a number of matters,” spokesman Tom Alexander told “They speak or see one another on occasion. The mayor spoke with the commissioner about several things that would allow Chicago and the NFL to expand their already wonderful relationship. Chicago is a great sports town and a great football town, and the mayor wants to build on these strengths.”

The NFL will have the draft at Radio City Music Hall through 2014, but after that it’s possible the event could move out of New York City.
