The NFL will not require players to be on the field for the national anthem in 2018.
The media owned by the league is spinning this as a "compromise," but it's hardly that. As Judy Battista puts it, "If players are on sideline, will stand. But players may choose to stay in the locker room if they prefer not to stand." Her colleague at NFL Media, Ian Rapoport adds, "Respecting the anthem will be paramount if you’re on the sideline. Teams can also set their own policies. Compromise all around." Compromise for the league owners, maybe, but the players had zero say in this said "compromise." The owners are simply trying to keep the anthem "protesters" and "disrespecters" off the field for the song. It may not even work. If a player has strong feelings toward social injustice -- we assume they do if they're kneeling -- a fine may not be strong enough "punishment" to keep him off the field during the anthem. The NFL continues to find ways to get in its own way and fuel a fire that keeps burning. May 23 - 11:07 AM

The NFL has approved revised kickoff rules for 2018.

The biggest change is that running starts are no longer allowed for the kicking team. Various positioning changes have also been made, while two-man wedge blocks have been outlawed. An outline of the changes can be found at the link below.

Sports Business Journal's Daniel Kaplan reports the NFL will award the 2023 Super Bowl to Glendale, Arizona and the 2024 Super Bowl to New Orleans.

It will be made official at the owner's meetings this week. In the past, cities would bid for the Super Bowl, but the system was changed. Now, the NFL selects a target city, negotiates the terms, and then puts the city up to a vote. Arizona and New Orleans are the first two locations to receive a Super Bowl under the new system.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the NFL is expected to award the 2019 NFL Draft to Nashville.

Nashville has long been the favorite, and the owners are expected to award them the event during this week's meetings. Chicago hosted the draft in 2015 and 16, it was in Philadelphia in 2017, and Dallas hosted the even this year.

In a statement, the NFL called on Congress "to enact a core regulatory framework for legalized sports betting."

In a 7-2 decision handed down on Monday, the Supreme Court struck down the 1992 federal ban on sports gambling. "The NFL's long-standing and unwavering commitment to protecting the integrity of our game remains absolute," the league said in a statement following the ruling. "We also will work closely with our clubs to ensure that any state efforts that move forward in the meantime protect our fans and the integrity of our game." Considering how much was legally and illegally bet on the NFL already -- $4.76 billion on the 2018 Super Bowl alone according to the American Gaming Association -- the league's argument that legalized betting would affect the integrity of their game is highly spurious. Instead of putting up barriers, the league should be paving the way for legalized sports betting and the significant bump in interest and ratings it would bring.
May 14 - 1:01 PM

EVP of football operations Troy Vincent said the league is not looking to get rid of the kickoff, but they are hoping to modify it.

Vincent said those modifications could be in place in time for the 2018 season. The specifics will be ironed out during the two-day safety summit this week at NFL headquarters -- the new helmet rule will be discussed on Tuesday followed by kickoffs on Wednesday. Vincent said he does not want to turn the kickoff into a ceremonial play, but there are still too many dangerous hits even on kicks which result in touchbacks.
May 1 - 9:00 AM

The NFL will meet May 1-2 at league headquarters in New York to continue discussion about player safety.

The "summit" will focus on the future of kickoffs. The attendance list has not yet been finalized, but invitees include former players, team executives, and both current and former coaches. Though there is reportedly no indication the kickoff could be eliminated as early as this season, this particular meeting will occur just over one month after the league added a "targeting" penalty. League offices have also prepared a memorandum to address the increase in training camp concussions.

Apr 22 - 6:47 PM

The NFL has added a "targeting" penalty to its rulebook, declaring it a foul if "a player lowers his head to imitate and make contact with his helmet against an opponent."

Offending players "may" be ejected. The league wants to eliminate using the helmet as a weapon. It's unclear how stringently the drastic change will be applied to ball carriers, though it will apparently be enforced if the "crown" is used to create contact. It's a big change, but one that probably needed to be made in 2018. No one benefits when defenders are allowed to missile in head-first.
Mar 27 - 4:45 PM

Owners passed the revised catch rule by a vote of 32-0.

The new rule eliminates the "going to the ground" portion of the catch rule and simplifies what constitutes a catch -- ball secure, two feet or any other body part besides the hand inbounds, and a football move. In presenting the changes, VP of officiating Al Riveron confirmed Dez Bryant's infamous "incompletion" in the 2014 playoffs and Jesse James' overturned touchdown last season would be considered catches under the new rule.
Mar 27 - 12:15 PM

The NFL announced the salary cap has been set at $177.2 million for 2018.

That's a $10.2 million increase from 2017. Over the last half decade, the salary cap has risen close to $60 million. With players making more and more each year and the league raking in billions, the cap will continue to rise.
Mar 5 - 7:03 PM

NFL Network's Judy Battista reports the Competition Committee is considering removing the "going to the ground" portion of the catch rule.

"Going to the ground" situations seem to cause the most consternation among teams and fans alike, so removing it would be a welcome step as the league looks to simplify the catch rule. Battista reports the committee will also look into a targeting rule, changing defensive pass interference from a spot foul to a 15-yard penalty, and stricter enforcement of illegal contact.
Feb 27 - 12:51 PM

WWE chairman Vince McMahon has confirmed he will be relaunching the XFL, and says he hopes to have the league off the ground by January 2020.

The resurrected league will kick off near the end of the NFL playoffs and feature eight teams and 10 games. Unlike the first time he launched the XFL, McMahon went to great pains to say he's not trying to compete with the NFL. McMahon also said he will be placing an emphasis on having a faster game. With the concussion crisis still raging, it would seem to be an unideal time to launch a new football league but there should be no shortage of aspiring players for McMahon's experiment.
Jan 25 - 3:13 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the 2018 NFL draft will be held at the Cowboys' AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tex.

Chicago and Philadelphia did remarkable jobs hosting the weekend event the past two years after the NFL decided to move the draft out of Radio City Music Hall in New York City. But Jerry's World at AT&T Stadium will provide a massive, expansive experience for the fans and bring in a bunch of money. The draft will be held again in late April from the 26th to the 28th.
Wed, Oct 18, 2017 11:53:00 AM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is "impeding" extension talks for commissioner Roger Goodell.

Schefter didn't say anything about the Zeke Elliott situation, but it's hard to imagine that isn't playing at least some role. Schefter and ESPN's Chris Mortensen suggested Jones simply believes Goodell is being paid too much money. "If not for Jerry, this deal would be done," a source told Schefter regarding Goodell's extension. Goodell's extension was supposed to finalize last month.
Sun, Sep 17, 2017 10:17:00 AM

Daniel Kaplan of the Sports Business Journal reports the NFL and Roger Goodell are "close" to a five-year extension.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the deal is maybe not as close as Kaplan indicated, but he still expects the extension to get done. Goodell's current deal runs out in 2019, so this extension will keep him in the job until 2024. It is interesting timing considering Goodell looks headed toward another legal fight over a suspension, likely has less support from one of the league's most influential owners, Jerry Jones, than before, and is almost certainly on the path to a labor dispute in 2021. Despite the public backlash, however, Goodell apparently is doing exactly what the owners want him to do.
