Bengals kicker Evan McPherson proposes another kickoff rule following major change for 2024 season

Fox News Flash top sports headlines are here. Check out what's clicking on Foxnews.com.

The new NFL kickoff rules have been a hot topic since the NFL owners voted to make a major change.

One kicker has another rule he’d like to propose. 

"I’ve got an idea for a fun rule," Cincinnati Bengals kicker Evan McPherson told the official team website. "If you kick it through the uprights, make that four points. And if you miss, they get it at the 30."

McPherson knows this isn’t something NFL owners will be approving anytime soon, especially considering the goal of this new change to kickoffs is to encourage more returns instead of touchbacks. 

However, points for kickoffs have been suggested before.

Baltimore Ravens coach John Harbaugh once suggested one point should be awarded to a team whose kicker knocks the ball through the uprights on a kickoff.

"I’m on record advocating that should be a point," Harbaugh, who has one of the game’s best kickers, Justin Tucker, said in 2016. "I’m serious now, kinda. Really, how exciting would that make it for [Tucker] to make these kickoff touchbacks so valuable?"

Kickers are allowed to get a running start from the 35-yard line on kickoffs, and there are many instances when they put the ball through the uprights.
