We all know Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is in favor of expanding the NFL post-season and now it seems the idea could be gathering momentum across the league.
There is believed to be growing support from within the NFL to bring in two extra teams to the equation as early as 2015, as reported by various media outlets.
The Washington Post today quoted sources on the subject and stated owner's could even vote on expanding the playoffs within the next month at the scheduled owner meeting:
"I think there's a lot of momentum for it.
"I don't know for sure if the votes are there yet (among the owners) or not. But there is momentum. A lot of people seem in favor of it," sources told the newspaper.
Commissioner Goodell is also supposedly keen on the idea, with the Competition Committee having studied the option of adding one playoff team from each conference to bring the total number of playoff teams to 14.
"I'm not exactly sure when it might get voted in," the source told the Post.
"But if the commissioner wants it, I assume it'll happen at some point."
Goodell spoke positively on the idea back in September, even pinpointing 2015 as a start date.
If an extended playoff was ever to become a reality it would need the official approval of 24 of the 32 team owners to be passed into effect.
But with the potential of extra cash an appealing incentive the proposal could be closer to becoming a reality than many of us previously thought.
