QuoteNFL to penalize use of racial slur
The head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, which monitors diversity in the NFL, expects the league to institute a rule where players would be penalized 15 yards for using the N-word on the field.
John Wooten, the head of the Fritz Pollard Alliance, anticipates that the NFL's competition committee will enact the rule at the owners' meeting next month.
"We did talk about it, I'm sure that you saw near the end of the year that Fritz Pollard (Alliance) came out very strong with the message that the league needs to do something about the language on the field," said Ravens general manager Ozzie Newsome, who is on the league's competition committee. "So we did discuss over the last three days."
Newsome also said the committee talked about other slurs coming under any possible new rule, including homophobic slurs.
Wooten, who previously has urged all players to stop using the N-word, thinks the NFL will rule an automatic 15-yard penalty for first-time offenders and an ejection for second infractions.
"I will be totally shocked if the competition committee does not uphold us on what we're trying to do," Wooten said, according to CBSSports.com. "We want this word to be policed from the parking lot to the equipment room to the locker room.
"Secretaries, PR people, whoever, we want it eliminated completely and want it policed everywhere."
Wooten thinks the competition committee will officially agree to the rule next month before presenting it to the owners.
"I think they're going to do what needs to be done here," he said. "There is too much disrespect in the game."
The competition committee meets for several days in Naples, Fla. next week, where they will decide what will be presented to owners at league meetings in March.
"We will now go down to Naples starting next Friday and spend more time talking about it,'' Newsome said. "We had some officials in our meeting that actually out there on the field and hear the language. We'll be able to put all that together and if there's a need to we will present something to our owners in Orlando.
"With any rule that we put into play we have to look at it from A to Z and find out any unintended consequences as much as the consequences. So, as it was stated in our meeting, there are mics everywhere, so if something has been said it's probably going to be captured somewhere. So there will be an opportunity to get it verified if we have to.'"

QuoteMark Sanchez throwing with “good velocity” in rehab
No one really expects quarterback Mark Sanchez to be a Jet much longer, but it sounds like he’ll be ready to help another team soon.
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, he’s progressing well in his rehabilitation from shoulder surgery, and throwing with “good velocity.”
He’s four months out from the surgery that ended his season, and likely his time with the Jets. With a $13.1 million salary cap number, it’s widely assumed he’ll be released before they give him a $2 million roster bonus in March.
His camp is meeting with Jets officials this weekend, but General Manager John Idzik didn’t offer many specifics when he talked to reporters yesterday.
“We’re not going to really comment on that,” Idzik said when asked about Sanchez’s future. “We tend to let things play out, so we still have some time there. I know one thing for sure, Mark’s diligently handling his rehab and we know that he’ll be ready. But we’ll just let that take his course.”
While the Jets seem to be done with him, it’s reasonable to think Sanchez will find work quickly in a market without many good veterans options at the position.
