NFL Makes More Cuts


In response to the current economic environment, the NFL confirmed today that it has reduced its staff by 15 percent.

The league has eliminated a total of 169 positions.

The league is freezing all 2009 salaries in the league office, reducing 2008 compensation (NFL commissioner Roger Goodell took a 20-25 percent cut) and reducing projected expenses for 2009 by 20 percent.

The clubs themselves have also reduced their workforce, with 200 jobs cut so far.

A league official said that about 3/4 of the clubs will be freezing ticket prices for next season.
