The NFL League Meetings are taking place this week in Arizona and marks the time when possible rule changes are considered. The extra point remains a key focus of proposed changes but will remain as is, at least for now.
There were no votes taken on the issue of the extra point, although there was some lengthy and varied debate about alternative ideas. Instead, it appears that the NFL’s Competition Committee, with input from coaches, will develop alternatives that will be presented at the next meeting this May. At this point, it does appear clear that the extra point, one of the key functions of a long snapper, will be very different for the 2015 season.
One rule that did pass involving snappers will prohibit players from pushing teammates in an attempt to block a punt.
