PHOENIX — The Chiefs will have to wait a little bit longer to see if the rest of the league will adopt their overtime rules-change proposal.

The proposal, initially submitted for the NFL’s annual owners meetings here in Arizona this week, has been tabled until the league’s May meeting.

But team CEO and chairman Clark Hunt was optimistic that the Chiefs would come back to that meeting with a stronger amended proposal, one that makes the overtime change applicable to the postseason only and keeps the second coin toss to start an overtime period.
