The new rule would take effect if a player strikes another player outside of egregious acts such as punching, grabbing of the face mask and stiff-arming.

The six proposed changes is the runner-contact rule reads:

“It is a foul if a runner or tackler initiates forcible contact by delivering a blow with the top crown of his helmet against an opponent when both players are clearly outside of the tackle box. Incidental contact by the helmet of a runner or tackler against an opponent shall not be a foul.”
