More to meetings than 2014 Super Bowl

IRVING, Texas — The awarding of the 2014 Super Bowl is the major issue for the NFL League Meetings on Tuesday (watch the announcement live on NFL Network and NFL.com), but there are some side agendas that will be discussed.

The possibility the owners could vote to enact new overtime rules could take place, although that seems to be on the backburner. In March, owners voted to enact rules that change the sudden death format for playoff games only. A vote could occur to apply those changes to regular-season games.

There will be discussions about the “enhanced” regular season, in which one and maybe two regular-season games could be added in exchange for a reduction in preseason games. A formal decision on such a radical change is not expected.

Prospective St. Louis Rams owner Stan Kroenke’s proposal to assume majority ownership of the team also will be discussed. Kroenke, who already owns 40 percent of the Rams and also owns the NBA’s Denver Nuggets and NHL’s Colorado Avalanche, is expected to explain how he will meet the NFL’s cross-ownership rules.
