NFL will test optical tracking system to measure for first downs in preseason

The NFL will test a optical tracking system for line decisions to win this preseason, Jonathan Jones of CBS Sports reports. If all goes well, the league will implement the technology for the regular season.

The NFL will continue to use the channels as a support for game operations and as a reference point for coaches, players and fans in the stadium, Jones adds.

The league tested the high-tech system at MetLife Stadium and Hard Rock Stadium last season.

The system would need to be installed in all 30 NFL stadiums as well as international stadiums where the league will play games.

Theoretically, the system will allow more precise measurements.
