The Buffalo Bills have introduced a new media policy heading into organized team activities, reports ESPN’s Mike Rodak.

The policy will limit the information reporters can publicize about the goings-on at practice, including when a wide receiver drops a pass or a quarterback throws an interception. Reporters are also only permitted to speak to players, coaches and team staff during media availability.  

The team released a statement detailing the new rule.

Reports (which also include radio reports, tweets, podcasts and blogs) pertaining to strategic and tactical information are strictly prohibited. This includes:

Referencing plays run or game strategy, including trick plays or unusual formations.

Reporting on personnel groupings, sub-packages, players who are practicing with individual units (first-team, second team, goal line, offense, nickel defense, etc.), special plays, who is rushing the passer, dropped passes, interceptions, QB completion percentage, etc.
