NFL League Meeting: Potential Rules Changes To Be Discussed

The 2012 NFL League Meeting kicks off on Monday and lasts all week. Among the topics of discussion are a number of potential rules changes.

The Arizona Cardinals are working hard on their offseason plans, but members of the front office will be headed to Palm Beach to take part in the 2012 NFL League Meeting. There are plenty of topics of discussion that will be on the table, but the most time will likely be spent discussing some potential rules and bylaws changes in the NFL.

Among the rules changes being discussed this week:

- Giving the authority to determine replay reviews to the replay official in the booth, not the referee on the field.

- Modifying the horse-collar tackle rule to remove the exception for quarterbacks in the pocket, so that a quarterback in the pocket may not be yanked down by the back of his shoulder pads or inside collar of his jersey.

- Changing overtime so that the postseason rule will be used in the regular season as well, and no regular-season games will be ended on a field goal on the first possession of overtime.

You can see a full list of the potential rules and bylaws changes by visiting ProFootballTalk.
