The NFL has recently announced changes to the rules of kickoff for the 2024 season. These updates are part of the league’s ongoing efforts to enhance player safety and improve the game. Safid Deen from USA Today discusses these upcoming changes in a new article.

In addition to these rule changes, the NFL’s internal media arm has undergone some cuts. Andrew Siciliano, Melissa Stark, Will Selva, and James Palmer will not be returning for the upcoming season. These decisions are part of the league’s regular evaluation process of its talent roster to meet programming needs.

Andrew Siciliano, known for hosting “RedZone” on DirecTV since 2005, will no longer be a part of the NFL Network’s lineup. The rights to “RedZone” were acquired by Google and YouTube TV, leading to production changes. Will Selva, who provided news updates for the morning show “Good Morning Football,” is also no longer with the network. The show is currently on hiatus and moving production to Los Angeles, with an uncertain future ahead.

Melissa Stark will continue in her role as a contributor and sideline reporter for “Sunday Night Football,” while James Palmer revealed on social media that his contract was bought out by the network.

The NFL Media, which is owned and controlled by the league, is currently looking for a buyer to take over operations. ESPN has been mentioned as a potential match for an equity swap over restructuring efforts that have led to layoffs and buyouts among employees at the NFL Network.
