NFL Owners Meetings
With the NFL Owners rewarding Super Bowls to San Francisco and Houston on Tuesday, Patriots owner Robert Kraft is making a pitch for a the big game to be played in New England some day.
The 50th Super Bowl will be held in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Armed with a key victory in the courts, NFL owners will gather Monday for their annual spring meetings.
NFL owners have voted to move kickoffs to the 35-yard line instead of the 30, but keep touchbacks coming out to the 20.
With 31 NFL head coaches speaking their minds there was unanimity on one issue: They all expect their players to stay ready during the lockout.
Few plays are as memorable or dangerous as long kickoff returns. The NFL wants to keep those “game-breaking” plays, but also wants them to be safer.
