NFL players have been able to celebrate candidly for the past two seasons, but one aspect may be subject to change.

The league will consider barring players from leaving the sidelines to join in on group celebrations. The subject was among the topics discussed by the league's competition committee Monday, vice president of football operations Troy Vincent said.

While offensive players have been celebrating touchdowns with pre-rehearsed group demonstrations, defensive players have countered by rallying the entire defensive unit for team photos.

"If you're on the field, fine. There would be no changes there. There are some coaches and some clubs who don't want to have players leaving the bench area to participate," a source told Mark Maske of The Washington Post.

Much of the league and its committees are in Indianapolis for the scouting combine, where rule changes will be discussed throughout the week.
