The NFL has never been an organization to rile up a media circus and capture national headlines. That’s just not the NFL’s way.
So it should come as no surprise all 32 teams have adopted drone technology, widely known for being uncontroversial and endearing to the public, for the 2015 season.
Trove.com‘s Mike Frazier and Dani Bostick did some investigating and here is a list of what each team will be using drones for this year.
Buffalo Bills– Remove snow from field before games. Beginning in August.
New England Patriots– Deliver Roger Goodell’s secret love notes to Robert Kraft.

Pittsburgh Steelers– Polish all six Lombardi trophies, every hour, on the hour.
Houston Texans– Provide in-game delivery of Brian Cushing’s PEDs.
