Sources: Los Angeles Rams to pitch QB roughing rule change
By Adam Schefter - October 16th, 2022
The Los Angeles Rams plan to resubmit a rule change proposal to the NFL's competition committee that would make all personal fouls reviewable, including roughing the passer, sources told ESPN.
The roughing the passer rule has come under intense scrutiny after two controversial plays in Week 5 drew unnecessary roughness penalties -- one on Atlanta's Grady Jarrett and one on Kansas City's Chris Jones.
Last year, the Rams submitted a proposal to the NFL for a potential rule change that would have made roughing the passer reviewable, but the competition committee voted against it 9-0 and it never made it to the floor for further discussion or vote.
