FORT LAUDERDALE -- The NFL spring meeting has wrapped up here at the Ritz-Carlton, and one nugget from a local perspective is that the league's fall meeting has been scheduled for Boston. The fall meeting will take place Oct. 12-14.
The meetings usually include a variety of business and football-related discussions/votes among owners and front-office personnel.
The current NFL spring meeting has concluded and here were three notes that caught my attention:
Owners are considering expanding the Rooney Rule -- which requires clubs to interview minorities for head-coaching positions -- to include the hiring of general managers or top football decision-makers.
Owners did not vote on an anti-tampering rule, which would create a time period before free agency in which teams could speak with agents about possible deals. Part of the discussion this morning was determining how long to make the time period. Competition committee co-chairman Rich McKay said one line of thinking is to keep it to just two days.
Owners passed the minor issue of offseason waiver claims.
Later today/tonight, the plan is to file one final update on what it is like covering NFL owners meetings.
