Roger Goodell Says NFL Is Considering Banning the Three-Point Stance


MIAMI — A ban on the three-point stance? NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says it's possible.

Concerned about concussions, Goodell said the league will keep looking for ways to make the game safer. Speaking on CBS's Face the Nation hours before the Super Bowl, he didn't rule out the idea of banning the three-point stance for linemen to reduce the ferocity of collisions at the line of scrimmage.

While science is still trying to determine the long-term effects of concussions, Goodell said, the league has made progress in increasing awareness about the severity of such injuries.

Goodell has met with NFL competition committee co-chair Rich McKay to begin evaluating possible rules changes.
