NFL rules changes proposals have been sent out to the teams. Which ones are the top ones?
It’s official! The NFL will vote on the rules changes that were proposed back in March next week.
Tom Pelissero of NFL.com broke the news via Twitter yesterday.
NFL clubs today received updated playing rules change proposals.
Most interesting: an alternative to the onside kick that would allow a team a chance to maintain possession by going for it on 4th-and-15 from their 25-yard line. Sounds like support for the idea is growing.

Four of the league’s teams (Eagles, Dolphins, Ravens, and Chargers) sent in seven proposals.
The Eagles proposed the following:
- Amending the blindside block rule
- Permanent expansion of automatic replay
- The aforementioned onside kick alternatative
- Changing rules to OT to make the coin toss less of a factor
Secondly, the Dolphins proposed allowing the clock to start on the referee’s signal after the defense declines a penalty. Finally, the Chargers and Ravens proposed adding what the AAF called the “Sky Referee,” an eighth official in the booth and a Senior Technology Advisor.
In this episode, Michael Pallas breaks down all of the proposals. He also tells you which one he thinks will be implemented and are the best ones.
There will be a weekly mailbag segment on the podcast, and Michael will announce the segment on both accounts. He will try to get to as many questions as possible.
