The Buffalo Bills, according to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, require a new stadium.

The Bills’ current contract at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York, expires in 2023, and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has urged the team to build a new stadium supported by a public-private partnership, saying, “You’ve got to think long-term.”
Buffalo’s ownership, led by Terry and Kim Pegula, has filed a $1.4 billion plan for a new stadium.
Commissioner Roger Goodell has urged the Bills to build a new stadium. The Bills, who have played in Orchard Park since 1973, have been putting pressure on local governments to assist them in the construction of the stadium.
“This has been going on for decades, and it’s time to get a new stadium built so the Bills can be here and successful for many, many decades to come,” Goodell said.
“You can’t really do planning and designs on things until you have a deal,” Pegula Sports and Entertainment spokesperson Jim Wilkinson told WIVB-TV. “Right now, the city of Buffalo and the state (of New York) are going to have to decide if they want a team.”

Lombardi: How can teams beat the Chiefs and Buccaneers this season?

The one benefit of not having any NFL games to watch right now is that it compels you to re-watch games from last season, especially the postseason games.
Such contests serve as the cornerstone of any offseason strategy.
Teams that didn’t make the playoffs should study last year’s final four teams — the Buccaneers, Chiefs, Bills, and Packers — to learn about their strengths and flaws, as well as what it will take to raise their club to the same level this season.

Tyreek Hill’s famous peace sign may need to change for the 2021 season according to NFL taunting rules

The No-Fun League hits once more.
It wouldn’t be the NFL offseason without a contentious rule change looming ahead of the following season.
This year, NFL officials will make taunting regulations a “point of emphasis,” which means that instead of some bad, horrible, and cool flexes, expect pleasantries among competitors all year.
In 2021, according to the NFL’s annual rule update and areas of emphasis video, game officials have been told to strictly enforce taunting laws.

Although automatic ejections and fines for taunting aren’t new, competition committee chairman Rich McKay said coaches raised the problem in the spring.
The following is an exact quote from the video.
Officials continue to be concerned about the illegal use of helmets.
What this means: Players like Tyreek Hill may have to have his deuces holstered when taking a Patrick Mahomes throw to the end zone. pic.twitter.com/oLLS3dOafH — Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 10, 2021
We’ll also miss out on great moments like Antoine Winfield Jr.’s.
In the Super Bowl, Hill was given a peace sign.
It appears that retaliation is no longer acceptable.
It’s worth noting that taunting penalties will be enforced more aggressively for the 2021 season, but end-zone celebrations are still perfectly acceptable and within the rules.
At the very least, the league has that.
After all, taunting will be tough for officials to pick out, and no two taunting scenarios will likely be the identical.
Put it down to the NFL getting in its own way once more.

Clay Travis is against mandatory vaccinations for NFL players and other athletes.

On Friday night, Clay Travis, co-host of “The Clay Travis and Buck Sexton Show,” appeared on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” to discuss his thoughts on coronavirus rules in sports.
RICK DENNISON, VIKINGS COACH, IS OUT AFTER REFUSING TO GET THE COVID VACCINE: REPORT CLAY TRAVIS: The NFL is going about it the wrong way.
These are healthy, young players.
They should be immunized if they wish to.
We don’t have to keep testing all of these players if they don’t want to.
Covid isn’t a threat to them.
I understand that some people are offended by this, but it is an important message in the world of athletics.
We no longer need to be concerned.
We have the information.
You are not at risk from Covid if you are young and healthy and participate in sports.
Now, if you feel in danger, you can be vaccinated, but I don’t believe any of these policies are necessary.

Broncos LB preview: Will Von Miller’s comeback be enough for a team that hasn’t changed much in the offseason?

It didn’t take long for new Broncos general manager George Paton and coach Vic Fangio to realize they had similar approaches to building a top-flight defense.
“In this league — Vic can tell you better than I can — you need pressure and you need cover players,” Paton said shortly after joining Denver earlier this year.
“If you look at the good defenders across the league, you’ll notice that they can rush the quarterback and cover.”
“The advantages of a rush-and-cover method may be evident, but maintaining that balance in the NFL is proving more difficult than ever.”
The ball is erupting at a faster rate.
On the field, there are more receivers.
