NFL owners voted Tuesday to change the league's extra point rule, pushing extra point attempts back to the 15-yard line. 

The change creates a 33-yard extra point attempt. Additionally, the defense will have the opportunity to return a blocked kick for two points. Two-point conversion attempts will still be from the 2-yard-line, as extra point kicks had been previously.

Several players reacted to the move on Twitter, with mixed results. 

Free-agent place kicker Jay Feely, who expressed his disapproval of the change on Tuesday due to safety concerns, wrote a piece for The MMQB in August 2014 about his feelings on the then-potential change.

Ravens kicker Justin Tucker told the team's website that moving the attempt back makes "every kicker's job a little bit harder."
