It's not even football season and it's a topic of discussion.

The NFL may tuck away some rules by the end of next week.

NFL legend Emmitt Smith is speaking out and football fans in East Texas tells us their thoughts.

NFL players may not be able to put their head down to gain a few yards.

The NFL reports, they are proposing a change to its rule-book.

Preventing ball carriers from initiating contact with the crown of the helmet.

Former Dallas Cowboys running back, Emmitt Smith, spoke out in an exclusive interview for a Dallas radio station.

He says quote: "You've absolutely lost your mind.''

'The Fan' 105.3 Dallas Radio Interview:

"As a running back it's almost impossible, the first thing you do is get behind your shoulder pads and what that means is you're leaning forward and you're running behind your shoulder pads, but the first thing they hit, the first part of contact that's going to take place is going to be your head...regardless," says Emmitt Smith, Former Dallas Cowboys Running Back.

Smith says, he disagrees with the rule all together because it doesn't make sense.

'The Fan' 105.3 Dallas Radio Interview:

"I don't know how you're going to be able to enforce that rule without really jeopardizing the integrity of the game itself," says Emmitt Smith, Former Dallas Cowboys Running Back.

At least 24 votes from 32 owners are required for this rule to pass.

Another proposal,  a change to the current 'Tuck Rule'.

A quarterback losing possession, during an attempt to bring the ball back to his body. Instead of it being an incomplete pass they want to call it a fumble.

Reports say, the NFL competition committee will propose this change to NFL owners at league meetings next week.
