Proposed Rules Changes Announced

Posted Mar 19, 2014

A look at the proposals that will go to a vote at next week's owners meetings, and independent analyst Andrew Mason's take on many of them.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- On Wednesday, the NFL Competition Committee held a conference call to discuss potential rule changes that will see a vote next week at the owners meetings.

In all, there were 13 rule changes, seven bylaws and one resolution proposed.

Independent analyst Andrew Mason gave his take on many of the proposals.

The rules changes that Mason did not tweet about were a proposal to eliminate overtime in the preseason, a proposal to make it illegal to roll up the side of a defender's legs (it is already illegal to roll up the back of a defender's legs), a proposal to re-organize rules about what can and cannot be reviewed, including allow the recovery of a loose ball reviewable, and a proposal to enforce defensive fouls that occurred behind the line of scrimmage from the previous spot as opposed to from the end of the run or spot of the foul.

The bylaw proposals that Mason did not tweet about were a proposal to allow teams to trade players prior to the start of the new league year, a proposal to permit clubs to time and test at its own facility 10 players who attended the NFL Scouting Combine -- as well as the ability to attend any timing and testing session at another team's facility that involves three or more players -- and a proposal to adjust the deadline for the final roster reduction to 53 players to 2 p.m. MT as opposed to 4 p.m. MT, which is currently is.

Broncos TV's Chris Hall will attend the owners meetings and have coverage from Orlando starting Sunday.
