The NFL annually invites teams to propose rule changes, but the competition committee is charged with vetting and either endorsing or allowing them to stand on their own. 

The Broncos had an idea about onside kicks. 

According to the Broncos’ proposal, released Friday night by the NFL, each team would have one opportunity per game to remain on offense after a fourth-quarter score. 

Instead of kicking off, the team would line up at its 35-yard line for what is in essence a fourth-and-15. If the team gains the 15 yards, it maintains possession. If not, the defense takes over.

The new Alliance of American Football, which has outlawed kickoffs, offers teams the chance to convert a fourth-and-12 from its 28 if it is down by 17 points or more in a game or if it is trailing by any deficit with five minutes or less remaining in the fourth quarter.

The Kansas City Chiefs followed through on their plans to propose that each team be guaranteed a possession in overtime, regardless of whether a touchdown is scored on the first possession. The Chiefs’ proposal would also abolish overtime in the preseason and eliminate the overtime coin toss. Instead, the team that won the pregame coin toss would choose whether it wanted to start overtime with the ball or on defense.

Rules need to be changed, but too much tinkering isn’t always a good thing either. 

Regarding the alternative to the onside kick, I like it. 

Onside kicks are pointless.
