The NFL owners met Monday to discuss the league’s proposed policy banning the use of the term “bullying.”
The league is expected to announce its new policy Tuesday.
The term, which was previously banned, is now being challenged in court by several prominent people, including former NFL player and activist David Beckham.

The phrase has been used as a derogatory term by many people for decades.
The league has since adopted new rules to make it more difficult to refer to players as “bunglers,” as well as to prohibit it from using the term when discussing players with whom they have had a personal relationship.
The new guidelines also require teams to report incidents of bullying, harassment, and abuse, as well conduct community service.
In response to the league-wide policy, a number of players, including Beckham, have been outspoken in their support of the policy, including when they publicly called for the ban in a tweet in January 2017.
They called it an important step in the right direction.
The league’s new guidelines are expected to be announced in mid-February, but the new policy will not be finalized until February.
This could change, though, if the league decides to extend the policy indefinitely.
