1. Control of the ball.
2. Two feet down or another body part.
3. A football move such as:
» A third step;
» Reaching/extending for the line-to-gain;
» Or the ability to perform such an act.

The key change to the rule eliminated the "going-to-the-ground" element of the previous rule.

Love the new catch rule, don't understand why they had to make the new rules regarding helmets. Now they can penalize for leading with the helmet, defensively or offensively. Sounds OK at first glance, but how are you going to determine intentional versus unintentional and who gets penalized. Just seems like another one of those judgment call types of rules that's going to make it confusing for officials, players, and fans alike.
