NFL’s revenue dip in pandemic significant, but not crippling

UNDATED (AP) — The dip in revenue for the NFL during the pandemic has been substantial but not crippling. It’s hard to measure the value of the biggest positive for the league with the season set to finish on time in Tampa with the Super Bowl between Tampa Bay and Kansas City. The biggest negative is revenues being on the low end of what was hoped because of limited crowds or no fans at all. It has been estimated that each team would lose at least $100 million in revenue. That puts the league’s losses at between $3 billion and $4 billion.

ALLEN PARK, Mich. (AP) — The Detroit Lions have added Duce Staley, Mark Brunell and Mark DeLeone to their coaching staff. Staley joins new coach Dan Campbell’s staff as running backs coach and assistant head coach. Brunell will be the team’s quarterbacks coach, and DeLeone will coach inside linebackers. This is Staley’s 11th season as an NFL coach. He was also a running back as a player for the Eagles from 1997-2003 and the Steelers from 2004-06. Brunell played quarterback from 1993-2011 for Green Bay, Jacksonville, Washington, New Orleans and the New York Jets.
