Pittsburgh Steelers TE Jesse James pleased with new National Football League catch rule
29 March, 2018, 02:24 | Author: Alyssa Little
"Whether it was the old rule, or this new rule", James told the Steelers' official website after NFL teams unanimously voted in favor of modifications to the catch rule for the 2018 season at the league's owners meetings in Orlando, Fla. The new rule says: "It is a foul if a player lowers his head to initiate and make contact with his helmet against an opponent".
The new rule doesn't mention securing a catch while going to the ground, a major source of controversy in recent seasons. The Competition Committee came up with clarifications that offseason known as the Dez Bryant Rule that further complicated the interaction between a pass catcher and the ground.
This rule change should eliminate any future instances of the Calvin Johnson rule and hopefully will put an end to speculation on what is or isn't a catch. Those two were implementing the NFL's new catch rule, which was just voted in last week.

A football move includes such things as a taking an additional step, turning upfield, tucking the ball away or reaching toward the goal line or yard line. If the foul is by the defense, it is also an automatic first down.
They decided as a group to pick borderline plays they wanted to be catches, then set about drafting rule language to make them catches. As with many changes, the league will have to see how it unfolds in real time in the heat of a game before it has a true read on its clarity.
Previously, the turnover ended the game regardless - even though the team getting the takeaway conceivably could itself turn over the ball on that play and see it returned for a score by the opponent. It's football. It's never going to change. I feel like they didn't do a good job on that.
Expect, then, there to be another meeting of the Competition Committee.
"As long as the officials are calling it fair throughout, week-to-week, game-to-game, team-to-team".
With the rule now including the extension of a football as part of the catch rule, prepared defenses will have more opportunities to force a fumble. Oakland was found to have not violated the rule that requires minority candidates to be interviewed for head coaching and executive positions.
