Whenever the possibility of adjusting overtime to guarantee the team that kicks off to start the process a chance to match or first-drive touchdown , plenty of fans shout, “Play defense!” They seem to be a vocal, but yet distinct, minority.A poll posted Friday on Twitter, which drew 34,696 votes , had only 26-percent support for keeping the current rule in place. The other 74 percent want the guaranteed possession for the kicking team.Here’s the surprise: More than 70 percent of the people who favor change want it for both the regular season and the postseason.As made clear during the recent #PFTPM interview of Cowboys COO Stephen Jones (a member of the Competition Committee), momentum clearly exists for a change to the overtime rule, but it’s more likely that the revised rule would apply only to the playoffs. And there’s good reason for that. Regular season games already are long enough, and the reduced duration of overtime (two years ago, it was cut from 15 minutes to 10) would create a incentive for the team that wins the toss to chew the clock, scoring a touchdown with as little time as possible remaining for the kicking team to match.Besides , the consequences of a single regular-season game pale in comparison to the consequences of a playoff game. Sudden death would be fine for a regular-season game. But when the outcome of overtime ends one team’s season and sends the other to the next round, a more fair process is required.It looks like that more fair process is coming. And it looks like most of you would be OK with that. Former Washington State safety Jalen Thompson worked out for 26 teams in Los Angeles on Monday, Tony Pauline of reports. The Texans sent their director of scouting.Thompson and former West Virginia receiver Marcus Simms are expected to be drafted in Wednesday’s supplemental draft. Thompson measured just over 5 feet, 10 inches and weighed 186 pounds with 8 3/8-inch hands and an arm strength of 31 1/4, according to Pauline. He had a 33 1/2 vertical and 40-yard dash times of 4.47 and 4.56, with a 4.16 in the short shuttle and a 6.98 in the three cone.The Falcons ran Thompson’s position drills.Thompson met with the Packers after his workout , and the Patriots, Rams, Dolphins, Colts and Cardinals also showed interest in him, per Pauline.Thompson lost his final year of NCAA eligibility, prompting him to declare for the supplemental draft.Former Syracuse linebacker Shyheim Cullen , former Saint Francis defensive back Bryant Perry and former junior college tight end Devonaire Clarington also have entered their names in the supplemental draft.
