The NFL’s Competition Committee is hitting the breaks on momentum to change defensive pass interference to a 15-yard penalty, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.
NFL Network’s Judy Battista reported Thursday the committee is not in favor of changing the spot foul to a standard 15-yard violation and is not expected to recommend approval to owners at next week’s Annual League Meeting.
Battista’s report comes after league executive vice president Troy Vincent told ESPN there was some “momentum” in discussing the rule change.
