By today at 4PM eastern time, every NFL team must be down to 75 players. Like in prior seasons, this first mandated roster cut tends to have the greatest impact on the long snapping position and rookie snappers in particular. Although not all roster moves have been made, at least eight snappers have already been impacted.
Among the cuts are Ryan DiSalvo (Dolphins), John DePalma (Eagles), Danny Dillon (Cardinals), Jeff Overbaugh (Rams), Chris Highland (Saints), Tyler Ott (Giants) and Andrew East (Raiders). Client Jimmy Landes (Lions) was placed on injured reserve and will miss the season.
The two teams that have two snappers on the roster at this point are the Bears (Patrick Scales/Aaron Brewer) and Bills (Garrison Sanborn/Reid Ferguson). It also appears two rookies, Kameron Canaday (Cardinals) and Nolan Frese (Seahawks), have made teams. Client Casey Kreiter (Broncos), who is a first year player, also appears set to snap in his first regular season game.
Longsnap.com will continue to update the snapping situations around the league with final cuts coming on Saturday.
