NFL passes new playing rules, bylaws

Both of Buffalo's proposals made were passed

Phoenix, Ariz. (WGR 550) - National Football League owners voted to approve several new or adjusted playing rules, bylaws, and resolutions on Tuesday at the annual league meetings, including one resolution submitted by the Buffalo Bills and another they were a part of submitting.

The one cutdown date resolution that was proposed by the Bills and 24 other teams means teams will now go right from 90 to 53 players at the end of the preseason.

Listen to WGR now!

Teams can always cut players and reduce rosters any time before that, but will only be allowed to carry a maximum of 90 up until that cut date, which this year will be Aug. 29.
