NFL focuses on 17-game schedule

     The NFL has dropped its proposal for an 18-game regular-season schedule in the next collective bargaining agreement and is instead focused on expanding to 17 games, per Daniel Kaplan of The Athletic.

The new proposal will reportedly also include a reduction of one or two preseason games, which we all agree, were a waste of time.

"Not enough owners support 18 (games) and players would not go for it either," the source told Kaplan. Each team charges full-price for admission to a pre-season game. I get why the owners are hesitant to eliminate a game or two.

Owners reportedly attached a 16-game limit for individual players to their first plan in order to alleviate fears about the player-safety implications of two extra games. However, NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith (pictured above) rejected the idea soon after it was outlined. Smith has also warned players to be financially prepared for a possible work stoppage that could last at least a year if an agreement is not reached with the NFL.

While the league dropped a game from its original proposal, it apparently isn't abandoning the possibility of expanding the playoffs by one extra team per conference.

The current CBA expires after the 2020 season.
