ESPN is reporting that during spring meetings on Tuesday, NFL owners have tabled discussions about an expanded playoff system until the fall.

Under consideration is expanding the current playoff format from 12 teams to 14 teams. The owners, however, never indicated a vote would take place at the meeting.

More than anything, a handful of owners wanted to take a wait-and-see approach as they discussed more details such as revenues, format, and even workers compensation concerns recently brought up by the NFLPA in reaction to legislation in New Orleans.
Also being discussed are the possible locations for the 2018 NFL Super Bowl.

The owners are still in the process of discussing a variety of topics, including which city will host the 2018 Super Bowl. The candidates are New Orleans, Indianapolis and Minneapolis -- with New Orleans considered the favorite.
New Orleans has staged 10 Super Bowls and is tied with South Florida for the most.
