SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — NFL owners will consider three proposals for changing the extra point when they hold their spring meetings next week.
The Patriots, Eagles and the league's competition committee submitted the proposals. A three-fourths majority (24 owners) is needed for passage.
New England has suggested snapping the ball from the 15 for a one-point kick, meaning a 32- or 33-yard conversion, or placing the ball at the 2-yard line for a 2-point try.
Philadelphia proposes snapping from the 15 for the kick, but moving the ball to the 1 for a 2-point conversion. The Eagles also want the defense to be able to score the points if it returns a turnover on the 2-point conversion to the other end zone.
The competition committee offers the same as the Eagles, except the 2-point conversion would come from the 2-yard line.
Kicks are currently from the 2-yard line.
