The NFL Rules Committee is proposing either moving the extra point try back to the 25 yard line or eliminating it altogether. With the lower trajectory with a longer kick, the possibility of injury comes into play. A longer extra point try would likely result in more frequent two point attempts. The other possibility would be a seven point touchdown with a point subtracted for a failed two point attempt. The proposal will not pass this year and not surprisingly, the kickers have come out against it.

New Jets have released receiver Santonio Holmes after four seasons. His biggest accomplishment was dividing the team with negative comments about the offensive front line. By the end of last season, he was literally kicked out the huddle by a teammate, something not seen before the NFL.com staff. Teams will have concerns about his motivation to remain an elite player in the league.

Oakland appears to be the biggest bungler of this year's free agency allowing offensive tackle Jared Veldheer and Lamarr Houston to walk. They also signed free agent offensive tackle Roger Saffold to a huge contract including $21 million guaranteed only to have him fail a physical voiding the contract. Saffold managed to re-sign with St. Louis. General manager Reggie McKenzie didn't get all the needed reports from the Rams before making this deal. Dallas apparently lost DeMarcus Ware to cap mismanagement and to Denver.

Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay has been arrested on four felony counts of DUI and possession of a controlled substance in Carmel, Indiana. The arrest occurred after Irsay was spotting driving slowly, stopping in the roadway and failing to use a turn signal. Police found multiple prescription pills and they apparently were not associated with prescription bottles found. Irsay failed several sobriety tests and was released on bail.

Irsay acknowledged becoming dependent on painkillers after several years of orthopedic surgery in 2002. Marion County prosecutors say the Drug Enforcement Administration is conducting an investigation, but that has not been confirmed by the federal government. The plastic surgeon who administered the pills to Irsay later surrendered his federal permit to prescribe narcotics.
