The "Sky Judge" may not be making its way into the NFL in 2021, but the league may be taking strides in that direction. According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, the Baltimore Ravens have withdrawn their proposal to add an eighth official to oversee the game on video in a booth. However, Pelissero notes that the competition committee's proposal for expanded booth-to-ref communication with video is gaining strong support and is likely to pass when owners vote on it next week. 

As it relates to this expansion proposal, the replay official and designated members of the officiating department may consult with on-field officials to help "advise the game officials on specific, objective aspects of a play when clear and obvious video evidence is present" outside of a replay-review scenario.
