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.

Running back Le'Veon Bell sat out the entire 2018-19 season because of a contract dispute with the Pittsburgh Steelers, then signed a four-year, $52.5 million deal, with $27 million guaranteed, in the offseason with the New York Jets.
