Spring Game, Anyone?
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.--One interesting development today at the owners' meeting was a discussion among the owners about the possibility of each team playing an annual spring exhibition game.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the idea was presented by multiple teams.
The proposal apparently is in its formative stages and is not close to being enacted. The owners probably will continue to discuss the idea in the future.
Goodell said the possibilities would include a team playing an intrasquad scrimmage, which would be similar to what college football teams do, or two different teams playing one another.
"It was raised by a few clubs, more in the context of what the colleges do with a spring game," Goodell said. "It could be in the form of a scrimmage. It was just an interesting concept. It's been raised before, but it was discussed a little bit this morning.... It could be either [an intrasquad scrimmage or a game between two different teams]. It was an interesting idea which we'll look at further, and it was raised by more than one club."
