NFL owners to talk player safety, team finance, pick Super Bowl sites

BOSTON -- This brief owner's meeting, taking place near Logan Airport in Boston, will be highlighted by the vote to award host cities for Super Bowl L and LI, but will also touch on a series of updates from various committees and touch on issues of finance and player safety as well.

The Competition Committee will provide a presentation on player safety and officiating, according to the meeting agenda, and the finance committee will conduct votes on a debt waiver extension and on a worker's compensation issue. There are ownership transactions on the docket for the Steelers and Raiders, involving minority shares, and the committee will update teams on ticket sales.

There are stadium issues to discuss with Atlanta, seeking a new stadium, and Carolina, seeking funding for major stadium upgrades and also with Philadelphia. The business committee will address proposed changes to the offseason calendar as well as issues regarding the policy for third jerseys, sideline sponsorships and matters related to the in-stadium game day experience as well as in stadium Wi-Fi.

The marketing plan for ongoing games in the UK will be addressed by the international committee and there will also be updates on player health and safety, player engagement and youth football.

The meeting is expected to wrap up by late afternoon, with press conferences with the winning Super Bowl bid teams (virtually certain to be San Francisco and Houston) and also with commissioner Roger Goodell meeting the media.
