NFL to penalize for use of racial slur

One of the other stories buzzing around the Combine this morning are the reports that the NFL may consider issuing on-field penalties for use of racial slurs.

These stories broke after the Seattle contingent’s media availability has passed. So for now, we are unlikely to get any comment from the Seahawks representatives on this. Also, important to note that the rule still has to be passed.

Expect a lot of conversation about this over the next few weeks.
