It's not the 25-yard line, but its a start, and likely a sign of things to come.
The NFL announced today at the owners meetings in Orlando, Florida, that for the first two weeks of the preseason, all extra point attempts will be snapped from the 20-yard line, resulting in a 37-yard attempt.
There had been talk about the league either abolishing what has been referred to as a non competitive play, or moving the snap back to the 25-yard line, resulting in a 43-yard try.
St. Louis Rams head coach, and Competition Committee chair Jeff Fisher told CBSSports.com "We all feel we need to do something, but we're not sure exactly what, [s]o, we're going to try this in two preseason games and see how it goes."
The NFL has been snapping the extra point from the two yard line, and was a nine-yard attempt, until 1974, when the league moved the goal posts off the goal line, and to the back of the en zone.
The league is expected to return to the distance it has been using for the past 40 seasons during the regular season, before any permanent changes are made.
