Rumors were swirling yesterday that a bid to host a future Superbowl in Seattle had been made. Do the rumors have any credibility?

Yesterday, a Seattle sports radio station reported that the Seahawks and the Seattle Sports Commission had submitted an application with the NFL to host a future Superbowl.

Today, Seahawks spokesman Dave Pearson said, "It is an erroneous report".

“We are not presently pursuing a Super Bowl bid for the City of Seattle,” the Seahawks wrote on their official Twitter account.

Seattle has never hosted a Big Game — though it is larger than some previous host cities such as Minneapolis, San Diego, Indianapolis, Tampa and New Orleans.

It doesn't look like it will happen anytime soon.
