Football Zebras has obtained the officiating crew rosters for the 2022 NFL season. This season, there are 10 new officials to replace 10 that retired. There are also 2 veterans designated as swing officials, who will move between crews through the season. There will be a swing umpire and a swing deep wing official for the 2022 season.

There is also a new referee this season, Tra Blake, who becomes the 8th new referee in the past 5 years. He is replacing 27-year veteran referee Tony Corrente, who retired at the conclusion of the 2021 season. Blake has 3 of the 5 returning officials from Corrente’s crew last season.

Down judge Robin DeLorenzo becomes the third woman hired as an on-field official. There are six women assigned to the crews in the replay booth, including two promoted to replay official this season: Artenzia Young-Seigler and Denise Crudup.
