Check out this report from Jason LaCanfora:
“Troy Vincent, the NFL’s head of football operations, said his department is prepared to make recommendations for a developmental league or in-season academy after years studying the matter. The league will begin the formal process of meeting with the Competition Committee, coaches and NFLPA after the season…
“Vincent’s charge has been to put forth proposals he believes owners ultimately would be willing to support financially and otherwise, as a considerable per-team investment may be necessary. This particularly holds true for a spring league that would consist of players likely with three years’ or less experience.”
Gee, I wonder where Vincent got this idea? It’s terrific.
