While the National Basketball Association is mulling potential changes to its schedule to reduce the strain on players over the course of a marathon season, NFL owners want to expand the regular season to 18 games in a move to increase revenue.
Per Andrew Beaton of The Wall Street Journal, the new proposal would not only give owners an 18-game schedule, which would essentially raise their revenue by around $2.5 million, but players would be limited to play in 16 of those games.
Such a proposal would mean the New England Patriots would face an 18-game season in which they were guaranteed to play two games without quarterback Tom Brady or All-Pro cornerback Stephon Gilmore - or kicker Stephen Gostkowski for that matter.
Additional regular season games would generate billions in revenue, which would lead to increased salaries for players (and significantly increased profits for owners).

Celtics' Tacko Fall is quickly becoming a Summer League sensation
He played the next season overseas before coming over to play for the Celtics, but he failed to make an impact. Ultimately, the Celtics' open roster spot could go to veteran help for the frontcourt on a minimum deal.
That will make several games much harder to win since teams will have to leave out key players.
However, players say adding more games takes away from their arguments made during bargaining sessions. According to the report, under the proposed system, players could potentially play in a maximum of 16 games, to maintain the normal workload of an National Football League season.
But in an effort to appeal to players, the league will also impose a limit of games each player can play in the season to 16. The idea has already received quite a bit of skepticism from the NFLPA with president Eric Winston scoffing at the notion.
Owners previously suggested an 18-game schedule during 2011, when a 132-day lockout threatened the start of the season.
