Teams can now employ four players with two accrued NFL seasons of experience on their 10-man practice squads.
The limit had been two players with two seasons of experience. The change allows more "veterans" to hang around and be developed. With more and more collegiate players jumping to the pro ranks early, it helps those that need quite a bit more seasoning. The rule will be in effect for at least the next two years.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the NFL will move the Pro Bowl to Orlando in 2017.

A press conference to announce a multi-year deal to play the game in central Florida will be held Wednesday. Rather than changing the format to make the game more enticing to fans and players alike, the NFL is hoping another move -- the game was hosted in Miami in 2009 and Glendale in 2014 -- will spur interest. Aside from 2009 and 2014, the game has been hosted at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu every year since 1979.

The league has awarded the 2019-21 Super Bowls to Atlanta, Miami and Los Angeles, respectively.

Atlanta and its new stadium beat out New Orleans for the right to host Super Bowl LIII. In our opinion, any decision that involves not playing a Super Bowl in New Orleans is a poor one. Miami and Los Angeles were the heavy favorites for the next two games. Rams owner Stan Kroenke continues to get his way after his years-long, and league-approved, plan to move his team from St. Louis.

The NFL has increased the number of reviewable plays for the 2016 season.

Per the league, penalty enforcement, proper down, spot of a foul and status of the game clock are all now reviewable. On-field referees can now also communicate with the officiating department during the game.

Bloomberg reports the 2017 Pro Bowl will be played in Orlando.

The league insists that no official decision has been made, and that Honolulu, Houston and Sydney, Australia remain in the running. The league's annual All-Star game has been played in Hawaii all but two years since 1979.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the city of Philadelphia "has emerged as the leading candidate" to host the 2017 Draft.

L.A. is also in the conversation. At the moment, Philadelphia makes more sense while the Rams work on the construction of their mega NFL complex that will also be home to NFL Network. The plan is to have it done by 2019. NFL cities all across the country have expressed a desire to host the draft.

Speaking at a rally on Saturday, commissioner Roger Goodell promised to add San Diego to the Super Bowl rotation if the city builds a new stadium.

The Chargers were originally hoping to share a venue with the Raiders in Carson but that plan was scrapped when the league approved the Rams' new project in Inglewood. Now the Chargers are looking to build a new stadium in San Diego. Of the roughly $1 billion needed to finance the project, the Chargers and NFL are planning to contribute about $650 million with the rest coming from tax hikes on city hotels. The Chargers are hoping to get enough signatures to put a new stadium on the ballot for November 8.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports the league's competition committee has endorsed expanding the playoffs from 12 to 14 games.

It's newsworthy, but playoff expansion is entirely up to the owners. The issue has been percolating for years, but the league has admirably done its best to avoid fixing what isn't broken. With the lure of more money — what else? — the owners might not be able to resist much longer.
Apr 5 - 7:17 PM

The NFL's competition committee has discussed reducing the number of preseason games from four to three.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy first suggested this idea back in 2012. Starters don't usually play in the preseason finale, and teams might find it helpful to have an extra week. Of course, the NFL would be losing significant revenue by canceling a full week of games. It's unclear when and if this will actually happen, but reducing the number of preseason games is an interesting possibility.

Commissioner Roger Goodell made $34.1 million in 2014.

The staggering sum included a $26.5 million "bonus," and would have easily made Goodell the highest-paid player in the league that's dealt with nonstop controversies during his reign. Since the NFL has since become a for-profit organization — it used to be non-profit, seriously — this will be the last time it has to disclose Goodell's salary. The president of the United States is entitled to an annual $400,000.

NFL.com's Rand Getlin reports the salary cap is expected to increase to "at least" $155 million in 2016.

It was $143.28 million in 2015. The number is tied to league revenues. Agents have likely had a general idea of what the cap will be for some time, and factored it into calculations about whether or not to take their clients to the open market.

The NFL is instituting a "Rooney Rule" mandating teams interview women for executive positions.

"We believe in diversity," commissioner Roger Goodell said Thursday. There are vanishingly few women in executive positions around the NFL, though the same is true for every major American sport. It's an admirable initiative from a league that's made a habit of bungling just about everything else.
Feb 4 - 2:59 PM

NFL V.P. of Officiating Dean Blandino said he will not assist in calling or rescinding penalties in his in-game communications with referees during the playoffs.

The NFL announced earlier this week Blandino will communicate with on-field referees regarding the correct enforcement of rules during the playoffs. Blandino clarified his role in his weekly officiating video. "This does not involve penalties," Blandino said. "When there’s a conference on the field, we in New York will not be part of that conference. We will not be listening in, talking to the officials. This is strictly a safety net in the isolated instance that there’s an issue with the administration of the game." Blandino already communicates with the officials while they review instant replays, but this is an expansion of his in-game role. After a season of high-profile officiating blunders, the NFL is doing everything it can to avoid embarrassment in the postseason.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the 2016 salary cap will be between $150 million and $153.4 million.

The 2015 cap was set at $143.28 million and has increased by $10 million in each of the last two seasons. Another $10 million increase would put the number at the upper range of the estimate. The Dolphins and Saints are the only two teams which project to be over the cap following the increase.
