NFL owners table onside kick alternative proposal
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is hopeful that coaches can return to their team facilities by next week. Goodell said Thursday following an owners conference call to vote on rules changes that the virtual offseason is being extended for two more weeks and deep into June. NFL owners tabled a proposal that would have offered a fourth-and-15 play as an alternative to the onside kick. They approved testing expanded use of video replay in the preseason to aid in officiating.
