UNDATED (AP) - NFL teams have proposed major changes to replay and overtime after a season of consistent criticism of officiating and which plays can be challenged or automatically reviewed.

Among the proposals, teams have made to the league's competition committee are an increase in the number of plays subject to video replay review and a change to the overtime format.

The competition committee will present teams' proposals and some of its own to the 32 owners at the league meetings March 24-27.

Also around the NFL:

- Tight end Dwayne Allen has agreed to a $7 million, two-year contract with the Dolphins after helping the Patriots win the Super Bowl last month. Allen made nine starts for the Patriots during the regular season and was used primarily as a blocker. He made only three receptions but has 139 career catches and 20 touchdowns.

- A person familiar with the move tells The Associated Press the Chiefs have agreed to a one-year deal with Carlos Hyde, giving them another veteran running back in their thin backfield. The 28-year-old Hyde was released by the Jaguars on Friday.
