NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell Hints at Potential 18-Game Regular Season for Buccaneers and NFL

The NFL may be looking to add an 18th regular season game to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers schedule, and all other teams in the league. While there are no official discussions happening at the moment, the idea is certainly on the table as the league looks to increase revenue and make more money.

With the addition of a 17th regular season game in 2021, the NFL agreed to reduce the number of preseason games from four to three. However, the current collective bargaining agreement prohibits the addition of an 18th regular season game. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has expressed interest in potentially replacing a preseason game with another regular season game, making the idea of an 18-game schedule a possibility.

While the idea may sound appealing from a financial standpoint, there are concerns about player safety and the impact on fringe players who rely on preseason games to showcase their skills. Despite these concerns, if the league and its owners want an 18th regular season game, it’s likely they will find a way to make it happen.
