Per FOX’s own Mike Pereira, the 2016-17 NFL season rule book is going to have a couple of interesting changes to it — the most notable being a ban on "hoodies", a.k.a. hooded sweatshirts, during game play.
Players may not wear exposed undergarments with an exposed hood hanging outside the collar of the jersey. Hello Green Bay.
Looks like the definition will remain in the hands of impartial referees. Nothing major this year to the extent of the longer extra point kick we saw last season, but certainly some changes to keep an eye on.
And now about a catch. No change in wording when going to the ground. Must maintain control after initial contact with the ground. Sorry Dez
