New Snapper Signings

About the Blog

Following the first mini-camps, a couple of snappers turned tryout performances into contracts.  James Smith of Florida signed with the Bengals and Garrison Sanborn, who was in last year’s Draft class, signed with the Bills.  As Sanborn’s signing demonstrates, it can sometimes take a year or more for a snapper to find the right place for an opportunity.  For example, most recently, the Chiefs added Tanner Purdum prior to the Draft to compete with Thomas Gafford following the release of veteran JP Darche.  Purdum snapper at Baker University in 2007, attended a number of free agent camps and send a reported 128 homemade DVDs before finally getting a shot with the Chiefs.
