While the players are taking their vacations or recovering from their injuries, the NFL not stop. The football organization works hard during the offseason to plan for the 2021-2022 campaign, and one of the topics that is on the air is the calendar scheduling. It is still unknown how many days the regular phase will have.
Changes to the NFL schedule
5 months after the start of the new season of the NFL, the league still does not know how many games the regular phase will have. The restructuring of the calendar is a topic that has been discussed for months, and the league still does not have an answer. However, a deadline has been set to announce the number of days the season will have.
At the moment, the proposal that seems to be gaining strength in the environment of the NFL It is the extension to 17 regular phase matches. This would imply that each franchise reduces the number of preseason games to just 3. This would be the first time since 1978 that a new official game has been added to the football season.
According to ESPN insider Adam Schefter, the NFL is in full negotiations with the Players Association (NFLPA) to define the number of days that the regular phase will have. The decision will be communicated, according to said source, on April 1, hoping to have everything closed with the union.
The extension of the regular season to 17 games has generated a strong nuisance in a sector of the NFLPA. Some players have publicly expressed their disagreement with the modification of the schedule. Some of those who have spoken are Alvin Kamara (running back for the New Orleans Saints) and Adrian Amos (safety for the Green Bay Packers).
