NFL Unlikely To Alter Preseason For At Least Three To Five Years

The NFL has "examined possible changes to the preseason," but any changes to the "amount of games is unlikely for the next three to five years," according to a source cited by Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. One of the main reasons for no change in the preseason schedule is that a "lot of these stadiums are publicly financed and in their leases and bonds they guarantee season ticketholders 10 games and just to go through that and untangle all of that would take several years which is why the 18-game season was viewed as a possible option." But the source said that the 18-game schedule "has not been mentioned in quite some time so it seems fans will continue to be on the hook for 10 home games" ("Around The League," NFL Network, 9/9).
