I don't hate 1, 2, and 3. 4 & 5 are stupid. 6 would be interesting. 7 is a good idea, so long as the officials are actually going to do their &#%$ing jobs (unlike the games the league played with the pass interference review experiment.)

Rule change to expand role of replay official expected to pass for 2021 season, per report
 

The NFL is expected to tweak its booth-to-ref communication
 

The "Sky Judge" may not be making its way into the NFL in 2021, but the league may be taking strides in that direction. According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Baltimore Ravens have withdrawn their proposal to add an eighth official to oversee the game on video in a booth. However, Pelissero notes that the competition committee's proposal for expanded booth-to-ref communication with video is gaining strong support and is likely to pass when owners vote on it next week.
 

As it relates to this expansion proposal, the replay official and designated members of the officiating department may consult with on-field officials to help "advise the game officials on specific, objective aspects of a play when clear and obvious video evidence is present" outside of a replay-review scenario. This includes penalty enforcement, the proper down, spot of a foul, game clock, possession completed or intercepted pass, and so on. However, it is important to note that the replay official cannot throw or pick up a flag under this proposal.
 

Along with this potential change, Pelissero adds that easing the restrictions on jersey numbers also has strong support.

One proposal that is not expected to be passed by owners is the fourth-and-15 alternative to an onside kick.

The source said Cook “would love to go back to” No. 4 but nothing is final and the process is ongoing due to “looking at the inventory costs.”
 

According to Pro Football Talk, the NFL reiterated to the website that “if a player requests a change for the upcoming year and there is existing inventory of unsold jerseys with his current number on them, the player must purchase the unsold jerseys before the change happens.” However, a player who declines to make such a payment can remain with their current number and “change the following year at no cost.”
