NFL owners could vote on Tuesday to change the extra point. There are three proposals on the table, all of which would result in turning the extra point into a  32-yard kick. Which proposal should the league adopt? Should they just leave the extra point alone?

Pro Football Talk summarized the three proposals:

Competition Committee proposal: Allow a team scoring a touchdown to either kick for one point with the ball snapped at the 15-yard line or go for two points with the ball snapped at the 2-yard line. The defense would have the opportunity to score two points by returning a blocked kick, fumble or interception to the opposite end zone.

Eagles proposal: Same as the Competition Committee proposal except the snap for two-point conversions would be moved to the 1-yard line.

Patriots proposal: Same as the Competition Committee proposal except the defense would not be able to score.

Vote in the poll and let us know what you think.
