DANA POINT, Calif. (AP) - Roger Goodell wants the NFL regular season to expand to 17 or 18 games.

The commissioner hopes to have a proposal to present to league owners in May. The matter was discussed at length during the NFL
meetings that ended Wednesday.

Goodell said the league has not seriously discussed the subject with its broadcast partners or the players' union, and nothing could be done without a new labor agreement.

The league now plays a 16-game season. A longer schedule, perhaps by 2011, would mean fewer preseason games. Goodell said the league doesn't need four exhibition games anymore.
