You have to think that this could create a roster spot by eliminating Lloyd.

Or we could keep Lloyd and just not bother to send out a coverage team on kickoffs. Plus, we would get to sing "Ole, ole, ole" everytime.

PP7 value drops if this passes. obviously.

I think it sucks. KO returns are some of the most exciting plays in the game.

Nobody is looking at to draft a Kick returner number one.

Especially one that has said he doesn't have a great desire to return KO's from the beginning.

He won't lose any value.

How long before the foot is taken out of football?

Probably not long seeing as the balls are already being removed.

I respectfully disagree. I've read and heard it talked about that the KO return ability of peterson is one of the things that makes him a game changer.

Owners have also voted to make all scoring plays subject to booth review. Coaches will no longer need to use challenges on these plays.

They have also, for the moment, set aside proposed expansions of the "defenseless receiver" rule.

(no problem for me with either of these things)

Peterson was on Total Access on NFLN last night. He said that he's been asked by teams about the return game during interviews at the combine. He prefers to do punt returns and not kick returns.

I thought this as well, but saw an interview with him last night in which he emphasized that teams spoke with him about punt returns, not kickoffs, and furthermore, that punt returns would probably only be in critical situations.

So there is likely no impact on his draft value.

I got no problem w/ the booth review....

I might have issue w/ the 2nd.....imo there were a lot of "bang-bang" football plays that shouldn't have been called as penalties last year....expanding that just means more good/clean football plays getting flagged.
