Among the possibilities are moving the line of scrimmage back for PAT kicks; placing the ball on the 1½-yard line for a 2-point conversion; eliminating the PAT kicks entirely, requiring teams to run a play from scrimmage; and allowing the defense to score, as in college football, if the ball is turned over on a 2-point try.

“If he satisfied the criteria to go forward and ask for suspension of his ban, the criteria will be carefully looked at, but so far he has not,” Howman said on the sidelines of a WADA symposium in Lausanne. “There is no consideration being given to it.”

Pitchers will have to beat the clock at Triple-A and Double-A this season. In an effort to speed games, Minor League Baseball's governing body said Tuesday, March 24, 2015, a ball will be called in the count starting May 1 when a pitcher fails to start his windup or reach the set position within 20 seconds after having possession of the ball on the mound.

“It definitely is a little weird, especially for guys who take more time,” said New York Mets left-hander Jack Leathersich, who split last season between Double-A and Triple-A. “Everybody pitches differently. There’s no right way to do it. I think it’s good for the game to speed it up a little bit.”

“You make tough choices in life. We clearly understand he’s under contact with the Vikings. After several discussions and much thought, I believe that it’s not in his best interest to resume his career in Minnesota,” Dogra said. “It might be best for all parties involved for him to resume his career elsewhere.”

“We’ve got the (medical) spotters,” said Rich McKay, president of the Atlanta Falcons and co-chairman of the committee. “They’ve got a really good vantage point, they’ve got technology in their booth, they’re communicating pretty well with our trainers and doctors and we’ve got a pretty good rhythm going there.
