In addition to relaxing celebration rules, the National Football League also finalized three other rule changes on Tuesday. The eliminated cut to 75 means teams will carry 90 players throughout pre-season and cut to the league mandated 53 in one cut day.
The roster cut-down period rule change allows teams to have a longer evaluation period of players, and allows those players more of an opportunity to earn one of the final 53-man roster spots.
Cutting off five minutes from the overtime period is supposed help address safety concerns with the physical toll of teams on a short week who play extended time on Sunday and then turn around to play again on Thursday.
The changes were approved amid the NFL's renewed emphasis on making their on-field product fan-friendly. Instead of it being 15 minutes in length, overtime will now be 10 minutes, which likely increases the chances for a tie. They can return to games eight weeks after being put on injured reserve. The fact the league is keeping overtime periods in the postseason at 15 minutes doesn't really matter, considering the postseason calls for games to reach a 2nd overtime and beyond until one team wins and one team loses.
After years of limiting how -and how much - players could celebrate following touchdowns, the league chose to loosen up its rules, allowing players to again use the football as a prop, celebrate as a group and roll around or flap their arms like snow angels on the ground again if they choose. Rather, he stated more broadly that "offensive demonstrations, celebrations that are prolonged and delay the game, and those directed at an opponent, will still be penalized".
