Give each team a certain number of exemptions per season - maybe 10? Could be 10 guys play 17 games or 5 guys play 18 games or anything in between.

Let players opt in if they want to be considered for more than 16 games in a season.

Have the NFL pay guys who play more than 16 games, not individual teams. Take some of that extra money the league would make and create a fund for this purpose. The rate would be 1/16 of the transition tag value for each position. Player contracts would still be for 16 games and the cap wouldn't be affected by these exemptions.

A team could conceivably play their QB, RB, LT, LDE, and stud CB every game if they all opted in and they all stayed healthy.

I will be blunt about my feelings. It's a bad bad idea that serves no purpose. I don't want an 18 game schedule either way, but, watering it down with games off...even with exemptions...just makes it worse.

I said I would be blunt. cool smiley

So my vote is? The thing serves no purpose.

Unless the real purpose of the proposal, as many sports analysts claim, is to again put 18 games forward as a bargaining chip and then demand concessions from the players to take it off the table.
