CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports the NFL's desire to have a team in Los Angeles by 2016 "cannot be understated."
Per La Canfora, "several sources" at this week's league meetings considered the Chargers/Raiders' joint bid in Carson, Cal. as the "early favorite" over Rams owner Stan Kroenke's project in Inglewood. La Canfora reports there are concerns Kroenke couldn't break out of the Gateway City "without a protracted fight." That may be true, but Kroenke has vaster resources than his L.A. rivals, and remains ahead with his stadium plan. Contradictory reports will likely continue through the end of the year, but the league's L.A. return appears poised to come to a head early next winter. May 21 - 4:19 PM

Date:

Extra-point attempts have been moved from the two- to 15-yard line, though two-point conversions will continue to take place from the two-yard line.

That means PATs will now be 33 yards instead of 19. It's a drastic change, not one everyone was necessarily asking for. There will now be big games decided by missed extra points. The league also implemented another rule change, awarding two points for botched PATs or two-point conversions that are returned for a score by the defense. That rule was already employed by the NCAA.

The NFL and NFLPA have agreed to limit the number of veterans who can try out at rookie minicamps to five per team.

According to FOX Sports, the "financial compensation for participating veterans was one of the NFLPA's concerns." It's not uncommon for vets to get a contract after trying out alongside rookies. It seems like a counterintuitive move from the player's association.

The Associated Press reports the NFL plans to change guidelines regarding the way footballs are handled before a game.

The NFL will discuss the guidelines at the owners' meetings in San Francisco next week, though the change would not require a vote from the owners. Tom Brady was suspended for four games and the Patriots were fined $1 million and lost two draft picks for allegedly tampering with footballs before the AFC Championship game.

The NFL has relinquished its tax-exempt status.

Commissioner Roger Goodell labeled the designation a "distraction." The NFL has repeatedly come under fire for its tax-exempt status as it racks up billions in revenues. As Profootballtalk points, the league's 32 teams are all taxable, for-profit businesses, however, so it's not as if the NFL has been dodging taxes. The move means Goodell's salary will no longer be public record.

NFL.com reports the league could play regular-season games in Germany and Mexico by 2017.

Albert Breer reports the league is also "starting to look at options to bring some form of preseason football to Mexico," perhaps even hosting part of a training camp south of the border. The league is running out of revenue streams to tap in America. It's clear it believes its manifest destiny is abroad.

Speaking at the Owners' Meetings in Arizona, commissioner Roger Goodell said the league has "postponed" the expanded playoffs idea.

The idea will continue to be evaluated over the next year, but Goodell stressed scheduling issues and the importance of the regular seasons as factors. Also, the NFL sounds ready to change the extra point for the upcoming season. Mostly all owners are in favor of making the PAT more of a "football play." It's tentatively expected to be voted on at the next league meeting in May.

FOX Sports reports Brazil is a "viable candidate" to host the 2017 Pro Bowl.

The game is growing in South America, and the league believes the exotic locale could up participation amongst initially-selected players. Next year's all-star game is returning to Hawaii after being staged in Glendale, Ariz. last season.

The Wall Street Journal reports the league will no longer black out non-sold out games on local television for the 2015 season.

Per reporter Kevin Clark, the league will "evaluate how it goes after the season," but it's hard to see this policy coming back. It's been under fire for years — including from Richard Nixon — and was under attack in Congress as recently as December. It's an outdated policy for a game driven by television ratings.

DeMaurice Smith has been re-elected as the executive director of the NFL Players Association.

Challenged by eight other candidates, Smith earned another three-year term on the first ballot. Smith has taken heat for the 2011 CBA, which has been perceived as being heavily tilted in the owners' favor. The players are obviously happy with him, however.

The 2015 salary cap has been set at $143.28 million.

In the midst of unprecedented popularity, the NFL continues to rake in massive revenue. That can be seen in the cap, which has risen from $123M in 2013 to $133M last year and now all the way up at $143M. According to OverTheCap.com, the Jaguars, Raiders, Browns, Jets and Colts have the most space right now. The Saints, Patriots, Ravens, 49ers and Chiefs have the least.

Speaking Tuesday, NFL executive VP Troy Vincent said pass interference could become a 15-yard penalty instead of a spot foul.

It doesn't appear to be a very advanced proposal, but is apparently being chewed on as the league ponders making some penalties reviewable. Pass interference is a 15-yard penalty in the college game. A change is unlikely for 2015.

According to the NFL's internal review, both concussions and torn ACLs were down in 2014.

Per the league, there were 202 concussions diagnosed in 2014, down from 229 in 2013, and 261 in 2012. Torn ACLs checked in at 49. There were 57 in 2013. Although the concussion numbers are encouraging, that's still a massive number, and there's no way of knowing how many went undiagnosed. As concussion awareness has grown, it's possible players have gotten more clever about concealing them. The crisis isn't anywhere near over.

The NFL is looking into whether footballs were properly inflated by the Patriots during Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

We've had Spygate and now we have Deflategate. The NFL requires game balls inflated with between 12.5 and 13.5 pounds of air. Anything less than that could help increase grip for Tom Brady in the passing game, and the officials during Sunday's game thought there was reason to take several balls out of play and weigh them. A source told the Indy Star that if the NFL's investigation confirms purposefully deflated balls, it could result in lost draft picks for the Patriots. Of course, the Colts had no shot in this game if it were played with a beach ball as they got absolutely hammered 45-7.
Jan 19 - 8:19 AM

The league will host an "NFL Veteran Combine" on March 22.

It will take place in Arizona's during the league meetings. The event — the first of its kind — is self-explanatory. It's a Combine, only for veteran NFL players. Per Profootballtalk, it will allow veteran free agents to "go through the same kinds of drills and testing draft prospects go through in Indianapolis, with representatives of all 32 clubs on hand." It's an excellent idea in a league where some players slip through the cracks far too quickly. We wouldn't expect too many players to get deals they otherwise wouldn't through the Combine, but it should help prolong the careers of at least a few worthy cases.
