There have long been rules in place in the NFL banning hits below the knee on a quarterback in the pocket. Now it sounds like the NFL’s Competition Committee will be looking for ways to expand that rule to enhance protection of the most important position in sports.

That according to NFL Executive VP of Football Operations Troy Vincent.

The NFL’s Competition Committee is meeting this week to discuss the options. They’ll present their recommendations to the league at the owners’ meetings next week in South Florida.
