PHOENIX - Among other news expected to be come out at the NFL annual meeting, which began Sunday and concludes Wednesday at the Arizona Biltmore hotel:
* The 2013 kickoff game is expected to be announced. Recent tradition holds that the defending Super Bowl champion plays host to it on the Thursday before week 1 Sunday. This year, that's Sept. 5 in Baltimore, of course. Teams' 2013 opponents already have been determined, just not the dates (which will be announced in mid-April), and the eight eligibles to open the season against the Ravens are the Bengals, Browns, Steelers, Patriots, Texans, Packers, Vikings and Jets. Our money's on either Aaron Rodgers' team, or maybe Adrian Peterson's.
* More free agency scuttlebutt. Every NFL owner, GM and head coach is here. They'll be peppered by reporters for four days. Juicy news will get out.
