Under the proposed amendment to Rule 16, each team would possess the ball at least once in overtime, even if the first team scores a touchdown. Overtime would also be eliminated in the preseason.
And the coin toss would be eliminated from overtime. Instead, the team that won the initial coin toss would choose whether to kick or receive or which goal to defend
Pro Bowl safety Eric Weddle is signing with the Los Angeles Rams, according to multiple reports. Weddle, who was released by the Baltimore Ravens earlier this week, agreed to a two-year deal worth up to $12.5 million, per NFL Network. Weddle’s deal came together quickly after the 34-year-old arrived in L.A. on Thursday night, according to an ESPN report.
“Mahomes’ bobbleheads have been among the most popular, and fans are going to love these new bobbleheads,” Phil Sklar, Co-Founder and CEO of the National Bobblehead Hall of Fame and Museum, said in the release. “Mahomes’ biggest fans will need to secure the three foot bobblehead while they can!”
The Chiefs also suggested another rule which would add review of personal fouls as plays subject to the coaches’ challenge for instant replays. Coaches could challenge personal fouls called or not called on the field. Washington proposed an alternate rule change that would make personal fouls reviewable. Washington also proposed the most sweeping replay review rule. Their suggested change would subject all plays in the game to coaches’ challenges by teams or review by the replay official.
The Jacksonville Jaguars released running back Carlos Hyde on Friday, and the Kansas City Chiefs might snatch him quickly from the free-agency pond.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Friday night that Hyde is set to visit with the Chiefs on Saturday.
It’s certainly a strategy worth thinking about. For instance, there are three free agent safeties who’ve been released that are all quite intriguing. I’ve already spoke a bit on Eric Weddle, then you have guys like Tashaun Gipson and Darian Stewart. Stewart was drafted by Steve Spagnuolo’s Rams team, and in this free agent class you might even get him at a discount. Gipson is just a really solid player hitting the market, and he’s only 28 years old. That’s just one position group and you already have three solid options out there and available.
2. Kansas City Chiefs
My personal favorite landing spot is Kansas City.
Before Thomas broke his leg, the Chiefs were nearing a trade for him, according to Yahoo!’s Terez Paylor. Since then, the Chiefs watched their terrible defense cost them a spot in the Super Bowl. Fixing the defense has to be their priority this offseason. The Chiefs could sign Thomas and still use Eric Berry closer to the line of scrimmage. Thomas alone wouldn’t fix the Chiefs’ defense, but he would shore up the back end better than anyone else. The Chiefs are certainly in win-now mode and they have a clear problem that Thomas could help fix.
