Locked on Titans: Thoughts on Gabbert, Sua-Filo signings; New NFL rules

New, comments

Breaking down all the news.

NFL: New York Giants at Arizona Cardinals Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports

We had a newsy day yesterday, with the Titans announcing the signings of backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert along with guard Xavier Su’a-Filo. The NFL made a couple of big changes as well, announcing a new catch rule and a targeting rule.

On today’s episode of Locked on Titans, we broke all of that down.

What does the signing of Su’a-Filo mean for Quinton Spain? Su’a-Filo hasn’t been very good during his short NFL career, but he’s a guy that can move around a little better than Spain. With him and Kevin Pamphile now in the fold, the competition at guard is about to heat up. The pressure is on.

What will the new catch rule bring to the NFL? Common sense, hopefully. What will the new targeting rule bring? It certainly emphasizes safety, but it may also slow the game down and put more control in the referee’s hands.
