Goodell salutes Ross' plan for Sun Life Stadium renovation

Posted: Updated:

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (WSVN) -- Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross wants to foot the bill for a Sun Life Stadium renovation and now NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is voicing his support.

In a public statement Goodell said, "I did speak to Steve last week about it. I salute him for his commitment to try to make sure he brings a first class stadium to that area. He is committed to it, and I think he'll achieve that, and I think it will be great for the area. It'll be great for the Dolphins. It will be great for the NFL, and lots of great events will come as a result of it."

Ross' plan to pay for the roughly $350 million upgrade out of pocket, but he wants a Miami-Dade property tax break in return.

He wants to bring the Super Bowl and other big events back to Sun Life Stadium.
