Report: NFL considering adding more replay cameras
Sunday March 29th, 2015

The NFL will explore the possibility of adding more cameras to assist with instant replay reviews, according to Albert Breer of the NFL Network.

The league will begin research and development Monday to determine "the right technology and then how to best integrate the cameras into the replay system that will work in all 31 stadiums," Breer reports. 

Cameras on the goal line will be the focus of the research. Since 2011, all scoring plays have been subject to review, but the lack of goal-line cameras can impact the accuracy of reviews.

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick reportedly criticized the NFL for not wanting to pay for goal-line cameras during a meeting with league officials last week.

“I think if we're honest with ourselves, there probably are very few plays where we don't get a great look at it,” Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett told reporters last week. “But these are the scoring plays, these are the plays that they're going to look at. I think our ability to standardize that process as much as possible will help our game.”
