In his 14-year NFL career, Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has caught nearly everything that's been thrown his way.
On Tuesday, the NFL made life even easier for the future Hall of Famer.
The NFL's new catch rule, which was approved unanimously by all 32 NFL owners Tuesday, is designed to simplify the often-complicated question of: What is a catch?
Per ESPN, the new rule "will eliminate the requirement to maintain control of the ball throughout the process of going to the ground. Instead, it will define a catch with a simpler three-step process: A receiver must control the ball, establish himself in bounds and perform a football move such as taking a third step or lunging with the ball in hand."
"I think that it’s great that it’s finally cut and dry, black and white," Fitzgerald said. "If you catch it, and he takes two steps, then it’s a catch. If he doesn’t, then it’s not a catch. There’s no discrepancies. I like that."
