NFL will consider college-style targeting rule for next .
The NFL will give consideration this offseason to enacting a college-style targeting rule by which a player could be ejected from a game for an illegal hit, subject to confirmation by an instant replay review.

Troy Vincent, the NFL’s executive vice president of football operations, said during a conference call with reporters Wednesday that the league’s rule-making competition committee will take up the issue after the season.

“I think it’s something that we have to consider,” Vincent said. “We’ve seen it work. It’s clean. … It is a deterrent.”
