HOUSTON -- Houston Texans owner Bob McNair says the city should take the lead in trying to land the Super Bowl.
On Wednesday, Harris County Sports Convention Corp. chairman Edgar Colon said the county and Reliant Park plan to bid on the 2017 Super Bowl.
Reliant Stadium hosted the 2004 Super Bowl, two years after the Texans joined the league.
McNair acknowledges that Houston is not considered a vacation destination, which has often been the case for Super Bowl sites. He says attracting a Super Bowl "is really a city effort" and the Texans won’t have much involvement. But he says if the team performs well over the next few seasons that could enhance Houston’s chances.
