NFL to consider replay changes

The NFL is going to consider centralizing its replay system and having them reviewed in the league office during games.

"Our No. 1 focus is to make sure we're providing the best officiating," NFL commissioner Roger Goodell told reporters during a league meeting in Dallas. "We always think we can improve. Consistency is important. By bringing it into the league office on Sundays and having one person actually making that decision you can make the argument that there's consistency."

The NFL competition committee would have to come up with a proposal to be voted on in the spring at the NFL owners meetings.

"We actually think we might be able to do it more quickly than the current status, but those are parts of the things that we'll study," Goodell said.

On other topics, Goodell said there's no deadline in Ted Wells' investigation into the Miami Dolphins' workplace.

"We want him to be thorough and not to compromise it in any way, so when it's complete that's when he'll present it to me," Goodell said. "And I have not given him a deadline."

Workplace issues will continue to be a topic with potential changes to unfold.

"We'll be reaching out to players, to clubs to evaluate that over the next several months so we do anticipate there will be changes in that for next season," Goodell said.
