NFL Competition Committee set to pitch new kickoff rule change

Dallas Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones, who serves on the NFL Competition Committee, anticipates a change in the kickoff rule for the upcoming season. The committee is considering a one-year alternative aimed at increasing returns, potentially adopting elements of the XFL model. The goal is to make kickoffs more engaging while ensuring player safety. Additionally, the committee is addressing the hip-drop tackle, aiming to define it and implement penalties to discourage the dangerous maneuver. Jones emphasizes the importance of education, fines, and officiating to eliminate the hip-drop tackle from the game.
