The Philadelphia Eagles are a very busy team when it comes to submitting proposals. Aside from wanting to make a change to the onside kick rule, they also want a change to jerseys going forward.
The team is now submitting a proposal that will push for players to be able to wear the No. 0.
Per Chad Graff (via Kaylyn Kahler): “The Eagles submitted a proposal for NFL players to be able to wear the number 0.”
The NFL recently allowed itself to become more lax when it came to jersey numbers around the league, and now the Eagles are trying to push the envelope even more.
As The Athletic points out, the numbers “0” and “00” used to be allowed in the league, so this wouldn’t be a first for the NFL. Back in 2020, the NCAA ruled that players could be allowed to wear the No. 0.
A few other rule changes the NFL will reportedly consider are making roughing the passer reviewable, an alternative onside kick and bringing back the “third-quarterback rule,” via the Washington Post.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
