wonder if this means the season starts a week earlier or ends a week later.
Why not both? Adding a second bye week per team seems like something the players, owners, and TV rights holders would all love. Maybe the NFL saves that move for when they switch to an 18-game season. Then they can start on Labor Day Weekend and have the Super Bowl on Presidents Day Weekend.

Just mentioned this on
@GetUpESPN
: Talked to three NFL GMs about the market for Sam Darnold. I asked what’s the most they’d be willing to give up: Two said a 3rd Rd pick — with one saying even a late 3rd would be “a little rich.” The other GM said “maybe” a 3rd or conditional 4th

I think the owners are looking down the barrel of an 18 game season in less than 5 years. Why give up the negotiating piece now when they will need it then?

That's my take.

I.E..... What @daves said.
