The NFL is taking no action on changing extra points at this week’s meeting. But that doesn’t mean no change is coming for the 2015 season.
The league has another meeting in May, and it’s possible that the owners will vote there on a change to the extra point rules.
“It’ll come in May,” a source told Mark Maske of the Washington Post.
But it remains unclear what change, if any, will come in May. The most popular proposals are moving extra point kicks back from the 2-yard line to the 15-yard line (to make them slightly harder), or moving all point after touchdown attempts from the 2-yard line to the 1-yard line (to make two-point conversions easier and therefore more common). The problem is that although many people around the league agree that extra points are too boring and need to change, few can agree on how the extra point should change.
So while the extra point will continue to be discussed throughout this offseason, there’s a good chance that those discussions won’t yield any changes.
