Support for expansion of the NFL playoffs is ample, but owners will not push for postseason additions until 2015.

At their annual meeting in Atlanta, NFL ownership discussed adding two playoff teams but did not vote on the measure, which will require approval of the NFL Players Association.

"I do believe it will be approved for the 2015 (postseason)," commissioner Roger Goodell said Tuesday.

The playoffs have not been expanded since 1990, when it went to 12 teams.

"I know there is a lot of enthusiasm for it," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. "The more teams that have a chance to get in the tournament the better. I think it adds more excitement."

Among issues to be resolved before 2015 include workers compensation coverage and negotiations for broadcast rights. However, Goodell said he and NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith had multiple conversations and the workers comp legislation -- introduced recently in Louisiana -- did not come up.

Goodell did not rule out playing wild-card round games in primetime on Friday or Monday. Currently postseason games are played Saturday and Sunday.

In March, Goodell said great consideration would be given to competitiveness and health concerns.

"It will create more excitement at the end of the season. We are quite optimistic about it but we want to make sure we do it at the right time and in the right way," Goodell said.

The commissioner also said the team owners did not make any decisions about future dates and locations of the NFL Draft. A committee was formed, and recommendations will be made about next year's draft at the owner's fall meeting, Oct. 7-8 in Detroit, according to

The draft was pushed back two weeks this year, and it drew large television ratings. Also, Goodell previously discussed moving the draft from New York.

"We're looking at everything," Goodell said. "We think that the draft has a great deal more potential to grow in popularity. We don't believe (the date) affected us in a negative way at all this year.

"Date and location are probably the two primary issues for us to decide. Radio City (Music Hall) is going to let us know by the end of the month the flexibility they have in their date. That will obviously be a big help. And we're obviously continuing our discussions with other cities."
