ORLANDO, Fla. – The NFL owners today passed two proposals from the competition committee, including allowing replay officials to consult with the league’s officiating department in New York during reviews.
They also approved a proposal that offers more protection to a player’s leg on roll-up blocks.
Both measures were approved unanimously by the owners, including the Steelers.
"I think that we are all interested in perfection, from a rules standpoint,” said Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, who is a member of the league’s competition committee. “And I think the expertise associated with central command or having the ability to consult with New York, I think, is something that is beneficial to all of us.”
