NFL Tables Hair Length Rule, Passes Defensive Radio in Helmet

ESPN's John Clayton reports that the NFL has tabled the rule brought forth by the Chiefs, making it illegal for a player's hair to cover their name.  I'm guessing this will get tabled again in May.

One piece of good news is that a defensive player will now be able to wear a radio in his helmet starting next season.  This will hopefully reduce the possibility of another "SpyGate" occurring.  The measure passed 25-7, and am anxiously going to await explanations from the following seven teams:

  • Green Bay
  • Oakland
  • Philadelphia
  • St. Louis
  • Seattle
  • Tampa Bay
  • Washington
I'll write the Raiders off as Al Davis being Al Davis.  But look at the other 6 teams.  They are all in the NFC.  I'm guessing teams in the AFC have a more vested interest in getting this passed, since they are more likely to play a team that has been caught "spying."
