Week One in Review

About the Blog

Week One of the NFL season is complete and there is some news at the snapping position.  Just days after the Texans gave Jon Weeks a contract extension, the Jaguars did the same with Carson Tinker, who, like Weeks, is now under contract until the end of the 2019 season.

In game action, three snappers made their NFL regular season debuts, with rookie Joe Cardona in New England and first-year players Charley Hughlett in Cleveland and James Winchester in Kansas City.  Three snappers recorded tackles in punt coverage this week with Jon Condo (Raiders) tallying two solo tackles, while Andrew DePaola (Buccaneers) and Josh Harris (Falcons) each had solo stops.  With the new longer extra point attempt rules in place, kickers went 71/75 in extra point attempts during Week One.

Finally, following final cuts and with the season now underway, many NFL teams are fine-tuning their “emergency” or “ready” lists in case a need arises at the snapping position.  Among the snappers that have received workouts in recent weeks are Andrew East (Seattle), Tyler Ott (Tampa Bay), Chris Highland and Rick Lovato (Miami) and Patrick Scales (Washington).

The NFL Long Snappers Chart following Week One is below and is updated to include the two contract extensions and more accurate height and weight information for each snapper.
