NFL executive V.P. of football operations Troy Vincent believes momentum exists for changing defensive pass interference from a spot foul to a 15-yard penalty. Apparently, however, there’s not enough.
Judy Battista of NFL Media reports that the Competition Committee does not favor the adjustment, and that the committee isn’t expected to recommend the change to owners.
art from whether anyone prefers a 15-yard pass interference penalty (I don’t) is the question of why this is suddenly a thing. The NFL typically makes rule changes on a reactive basis, and nothing has happened in recent years to create any sort of outcry for changing the rule.
However it all plays out, the owners ultimately will decide which rules will or won’t change. Until they do, folks connected to the process may try to put their preferred rule changes in the best position to succeed by, among other things, telling the media that momentum exists for a given change when, in reality, it may not. The Cheap DUKe Jerseys owners probably realize this; it’s time for the rest of us to start doing the same.
Cowboys Executive vice president Stephen Jones confirmed to reporters today that Williams will miss some time during offseason work. It’s unclear when or how Williams suffered the injury, but it required surgery.

Reid, who was watching his brother Justin at Stanford’s Pro Day, also said Cheap Game Jerseys that he’s not planning to continue taking a knee when and if he does sign with a team for the 2018 season.
“My patience isn’t infinite,” Johnson said, via ESPN.com. “I expect those guys to straighten up, and I’m going to talk to them about that.”
Jaguars tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins spent most of the last two seasons with the Jets and credited the team with helping him get sober after his alcohol problems led to a DUI in 2016. Johnson and the Jets hope things can work out in a similar fashion this time around.
