Lions K Matt Prater not happy about new extra point rule
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/28/15) Lions kicker Matt Prater is concerned that the NFL's new rule moving extra points back to the 15-yard line could have some major effects toward kickers.
"Am I thrilled about it? No, I don't think any other kicker is," Prater said in an interview with ESPN.com. "You know, they make these rules and they never talk to any of us about it. I don't know. I just feel that eventually they are just trying to weed kicking out of the game completely. It's something we'll have to deal with and hopefully make them all."
He also questioned the motive from the league with making this kind of rule change.
"I don't know what the owners and (NFL commissioner Roger) Goodell and all them are thinking," Prater said. "But I'm just going to try and do my job and keep my mouth shut for the most part."

Kicker Matt Prater would like to re-sign with the Lions
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/8/15) Kicker Matt Prater said he would like to return to the Lions' roster in 2015. He converted 21 of 26 field goals in 11 games after signing with Detroit in October.
"Yeah, I definitely want to come back here and I've talked with my agent and told people in the building that I want to come back," Prater said Monday, per The Detroit News. "I feel loyalty here because they gave me an opportunity and I had a lot of fun being here."
Prater was signed to a one-year deal after being cut by the Broncos on Oct. 3.
"I had other teams interested, too, but I really wanted to come here because I saw a great team," Prater said. "Coach (Jim) Caldwell and (special teams coach John Bonamego) and everyone, I wanted to come here to work with them. They put a lot of trust in me, so I didn't want to let them down. Now, I feel like I owe them, and so I want to stay here as long as I can."
|Matt Prater has been charged with kicking for the Lions in 2015 after hitting 21 of 25 field goals and 21 extra points over 11 games last season. Averaging 8.2 Fantasy points per game put Prater in the top 10 among kickers in that category. He's made at least 80 percent of his field goals in his last three seasons and should be considered fine to start the season with in Fantasy. He's worth looking into with a final-round selection.
