The NFL rules committee just took a page out of the NCAA’s playbook. Dangerous helmet-to-helmet hits targeting defenseless players will now merit automatic — but reviewable — ejections, aping the college Cheap Jerseys Outlets game’s controversial targeting rule.
The new policy will turn egregious helmet-to-helmet hits from a 15-yard penalty into an automatic ejection for the offending player. The flag will also result in a 15-yard walkoff and an automatic first down for the team on the receiving end. However, these plays will be subject to an automatic review, where a replay has the opportunity to overrule any incorrectly assessed penalty.
But the violations don’t just apply to head-to-head contact. Here’s the full NCAA rule from which the NFL borrowed liberally:
That leaves the 30-year-old to join his fourth team as a pro. Daniel was an undrafted free agent after a productive and successful college career at Missouri. He spent his first three seasons backing up Brees and won a Super Bowl ring with the Saints, but left the team after attempting just nine passes in white and gold.
Free agency led him to Kansas City to back up Alex Smith. Daniel earned a pair of starts there thanks to injury, posting a 1-1 record, but underwhelmed behind center. His 78.6 passer rating with the club Cheap Kids NHL Jerseys would have placed him 27th among qualified starters last year, sandwiched between Blake Bortles and Case Keenum. Regardless, those limited appearances were enough to convince the Eagles to take a $21 million flier on him.
His time in Philadelphia petered out after just one season, and now, it appears he’s got a one-year tryout with the Saints, the same team he began his career with in 2010.
