1. NFL games in Mexico or Germany could happen by 2017

By John Breech - CBS Sports

"When the NFL Spring Meetings ended on May 20, Roger Goodell casually mentioned during a press conference that the NFL could soon be playing regular season games in both Mexico and Germany.

However, Goodell didn't exactly give us a timeline for when those games might happen, which is where Art Rooney II comes in.

The Steelers president, who also happens to be a member of the NFL's international committee, said on Friday that he'll be "disappointed" if Mexico and Germany aren't hosting regular season games by 2020."    READ MORE…

3. NFL taking closer look at Los Angeles relocation fees

By Nick Wagoner - ESPN

"There are many moving parts to the potential relocation of the St. Louis Rams, Oakland Raiders and San Diego Chargers to Los Angeles. But one that the league is beginning to examine is what the cost of moving will be for the teams that get the green light to go.

Relocation fees figure to be a big part of the equation, and though they won't likely be enough to prevent anyone from moving, the potential cost of a relocation could give some pause, especially if that tag reaches the exorbitant prices some are projecting.

4. Challenges for Ben Roethlisberger after signing $99 million deal

By Jeremy Fowler - ESPN

"Coming off a career statistical year and with his best supporting cast in years, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has a great chance to play at the level his new contract suggests he will.

Tuesday's OTA session marks the first time Roethlisberger takes the field in a competitive team setting since signing a five-year, $99 million deal this offseason that can vault to $108 million.

"Broncos coach Gary Kubiak is preparing for changes in the wake of the NFL's new extra point and two-point conversion rules.

Last week, owners approved the Competition Committee's proposal to move the extra point to the 15-yard line after decades of spotting the ball at the two-yard line. The owners also tweaked the two-point conversion, giving defenses the opportunity to score two points on a turnover and runback.

Kubiak said the Broncos have had internal talks about the possibility of adding a two-point specialist and added that he plans to carve out time in practice to work on two-point attempts and the defense of those plays."    READ MORE…
