The NFL may not be finished fiddling with kickoffs.

According to Kevin Seifert of ESPN.com Karl Joseph Jersey , the league said there may be additional changes to this year’s new rules about kickoffs, which they’re trying to make safer.

A league spokesman said any additional changes would be “minor,” but the fact they’re still adjusting just before training camp starts is still a bit startling.

The new rules are a significant change, with former referee Terry McAulay calling them “the biggest change I’ve ever seen.” And if the league’s considering adjusting the rule book now (it was just published on June 28), there figures to be confusion among coaches as they try to figure out what to teach players.

“The NFL officiating and football operations staff Stefan Charles Jersey , with competition committee approval, may make some minor tweaks to the language to further clarify the rule,” league spokesman Michael Signora said. “If so, that information would be circulated to all clubs and the rule book updated accordingly.”

The league took steps to change kickoffs to try to curb injuries, routinely describing it as the most dangerous play in the game. And even in the recently published rulebook K'Waun Williams Jersey , there were other changes which hadn’t been previously disclosed, including automatic touchbacks if a ball hits the end zone without being touched by a member of the receiving team.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said in April that it feels like his first offseason with the team rather than his 13th as the team has hired new coordinators on both sides of the ball.

On offense, McCarthy said the team went “back to Page 1 in the playbook” but it sounds like the differences from past seasons are going to be less dramatic. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers said it is not “wholesale change” and offensive coordinator Joe Philbin also said the alterations have stopped short of creating something different.

“As I said to them in the first meeting we had on April 16, 鈥業f you look at historically what this offense has done in the 12 years that Mike’s been here, I think it’s third in the NFL. So that’s like in the top 10 percent of your business over a long period of time.鈥?So they鈥檝e done a lot of great things here Justin Evans Jersey ,鈥?Philbin said, via Jason Wilde of the Wisconsin State Journal. 鈥淚t’s been a process of refining, enhancing, tweaking, as opposed to Roger Craig Jersey , ‘Yeah we scrubbed it down.鈥?Yes, we went page by page. [But] we’re not starting from scratch here. These players in that locker room, they’ve done some great things.”

One big reason why the Packers aren’t starting over is Rodgers. Passing game coordinator Jim Hostler said the offense “really won鈥檛 look any different from the eye” because having Rodgers around to run it ensures that things will remain familiar even with tweaks around the edges.
