Colts' Matt Overton makes his point

January, 22, 2014
Matt Overton of the Indianapolis Colts is in the NFL because of his ability to be a long snapper on field goals, extra points and punts.

If NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has his way, Overton won’t have to be worry about snapping on extra points anymore. Goodell told NFL Network that the competition committee may consider getting rid of extra points because of such high success rate.

Overton, who is in Hawaii to play in the Pro Bowl this week, went to Twitter to give his opinion over the possibility of having extra points taken away.

“From a specialist standpoint I’d rather see the extra point remain in the game simply because it’s a traditional part of a scoring drive,” Overton wrote.
