NFL Bans the Leaping the Snapper Play

As expected, the NFL approved a new rule that prohibits a player from crossing the line of scrimmage in an attempt to block an extra point or field goal attempt.  Under the amended rule, a player can run forward and leap as long as he does not cross the line of scrimmage or land on players.

Another rule proposal that would protect snappers for at least one second after a snap did not obtain approval.
