"It’s going to be tough on certain positions – running backs, receivers, guys who take a lot of hits," Whitworth said. "Adding two games you’re adding chances for more injuries. I think most players when they hear it they say they don’t want to play it. When you present it to them and say look you’re only going to be here for a shorter amount of time (less OTAs and offseason workouts) then they would consider it. There’s no way to look at it now and have a longer season." Andrew Whitworth's thoughts on an 18 game regular season.
