NFL Informed Teams That They're Working To Hire Replacement Officials

Look Jim, you're getting an elbow if you don't shut up.

Possible replacement officials include those from semi-professional leagues as well as those already in retirement.

According to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter, talks between the NFL and the NFL Referees Association have broken off.
