NFL owners approve proposal to penalize hip-drop tackles

New NFL Rule Change: Hip-Drop Tackles to Result in 15-Yard Penalty and Fines for Players.

The NFL’s league meetings on Monday saw a strong show of support for the proposed penalty for hip-drop tackles among teams. In a vote of team owners, the measure was approved, and the new rule change will result in a 15-yard penalty for hip-drop tackles during games, with players also facing fines from the league.

The decision was met with opposition from the NFL Players Association, which labeled it as a rule change that would cause confusion for players, coaches, and others involved in the sport. However, with the decision made, everyone will now have to adjust to the enforcement of the rule during the upcoming 2024 season.

The NFL stated that hip-drop tackles lead to significantly more injuries compared to other types of tackles, with a rate of 20-25 times higher. The league has been working hard to reduce injury rates in football and hopes that this new rule change will help achieve that goal.
