Outdated “quarters” rule could change

Of all the dumb things the NFL does when it comes to tiptoeing around the free farm system that is college football, the absolute dumbest relates to the rule that prevents rookies who have been drafted and, in many cases, signed to contract from reporting for duty because educational institutions from which they’ve already withdrawn have yet to play Pomp and Circumstance. As explained by Joseph Person of the Charlotte Observer, the American Football Coaches Association has engaged in “preliminary discussions” with the league about changing the rule. The AFCA, which successfully pushed for the adoption of the rule more than 20 years ago, could be willing to abandon the rule that keeps incoming players from participating in anything more than one rookie minicamp until final exams have concluded.
