The NFL spring meeting is set to take place early this week in South Florida, but what's the significance?

At the league's annual meetings in March, owners approved a new rule that will allow all offensive and defensive pass interference calls to be challenged. So why could there be another discussion about pass interference, as has been reported?

Rather than being asked to change the rule, team owners will be asked to vote in Key Biscayne, Florida, to allow the competition committee to change the rule without another vote of the full ownership.

The reason? Last year's newly implemented helmet rule caused problems early in the season because of the way it was called by on-field officials. Given there was no way for the NFL to alter the rule to fix problems once the season began, the league is looking to avoid a similar situation with the pass interference rule in 2019.

NFL spring meeting 2019 : Pass interference is on the owners ' agenda again . May 24, 2016 · The NFL has decided on the locations of the 2019 , 2020 and 2021 Super Bowls. The vote took place at the NFL owners meetings in Charlotte on Tuesday.

Another issue that could be revisited after being tabled in March is the Chiefs' proposal to change overtime.

Kansas City infamously lost to New England in overtime of the AFC championship game without quarterback Patrick Mahomes ever touching the ball, so the Chiefs suggested a rule that would guarantee each team a possession in overtime of regular-season and playoff games.

However, NFL Media reported that one unidentified high-ranking league official believes the proposal will just be postponed once again.

Further, The Washington Post reported the proposition was likely "a distinct long shot" to pass based on its discussions with unidentified individuals close to the situation.

Aside from rules, player safety issues likely will be addressed and future draft locations also could be awarded.
