The NFL goes to the desert this week, but it's not for fun in the sun as much as it is to get the ball rolling toward the 2017 season at the Annual League Meeting.

And newyorkjets.com will be on site at the resort in the Phoenix area to keep you up to date on what's happening.

Senior reporter Eric Allen will be anchoring two live shows from the meeting. The first show will be streamed on newyorkjets.com and Facebook at 1 p.m. ET on Monday, the first day of the event.

The next morning, EA and crew will be up early to stream head coach Todd Bowles' remarks with reporters at the AFC Head Coaches Breakfast. That show will be streamed live also on newyorkjets.com/Facebook at 10:15 a.m. ET.

Among the meeting's other anticipated highlights:

Las Vegas Raiders: One of the big topics in Phoenix will be whether Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis will gain approval for the Silver & Black's proposed move to Las Vegas.

The Commish: NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell will address the media Wednesday at 2:30 p.m. ET to wrap up the meeting after the NFC Head Coaches Breakfast that morning.

Rules, Rules, Rules: The NFL Competition Committee will hold its annual news conference discussing proposed rules changes for the coming season. Among the changes that may possibly be voted on by ownership this year:

■ Softening of the NFL's stance on illegal celebrations.

■ Banning defensive players from leaping over the line of scrimmage on field goal and extra point kicks.

■ Shifting instant replay rulings from the on-field officials to officials stationed at the league office in New York.

■ Suspending players automatically for certain "egregious illegal hits."

■ Shortening the maximum length of overtime periods in preseason and regular-season games from 15 to 10 minutes.

It's also been reported that the NFL will again consider hiring full-time referees. And a vote is expected to make the the 33-yard extra point, instituted in 2015 as an experiment, permanent.
