The NFL has yet to announce any tentative start dates for minicamp or training camp, but they do want to start the NFL season on time, and it might affect preseason games.
NFL executives have been discussing the possibility of shortening the preseason and playing two games rather than four, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
The thinking is that the shorter preseason would allow even more preparation time to work out details of health and safety protocols.
Beginning in 2021, the league is shortening its preseason by one game and fans have been overwhelmingly receptive to that change.
This may ultimately lead to the preseason being two games only going forward at some time.
