At midnight, NFL free agency begins and without the benefit of the salary cap. There have been a number of developments on the eve of the free agency period at the snapping spot. Ken Amato of the Titans, a potential unrestricted free agent, has signed a two-year contract to remain with the Titans, while Mike Schneck of the Falcons has decided to end his 11 year career and retire.
There were two restricted free agent snappers this year and Raider snapper Jon Condo made headlines yesterday when the Raiders gave him a contract tender that would earn them a second round pick if someone were to sign him and the Raiders did not match the offer. The other restricted free agent, Ryan Neill of the Rams, was not tendered a contract and now becomes an unrestricted free agent.
The other unrestricted snappers are Ethan Albright (Redskins), James Dearth (Jets), Kevin Houser (Seahawks), Jason Kyle (Saints), Chris Massey (Rams), client Bryan Pittman (Texans), Jeff Robinson (Seahawks) and Joe Zelenka (Falcons).
