Crazy Day for Snappers

Today was one of the more unique days at the long snapping position in the NFL.  It started yesterday when Bears snapper and client Patrick Scales was injured against the Titans.  With Scales out, the Bears worked out Jeff Overbaugh and client Jimmy Landes today and ultimtaely signed Overbaugh.

In another move today, the Colts traded rookie long snapper Thomas Hennessy to the Jets.  The Colts plan to have Luke Rhodes snap and play linebacker and had the luxury to move Hennessy.  It is unclear how this move impacts current Jets snapper Tanner Purdum.

There were two additional snapping moves today, as the Packers waived client Derek Hart and the Ravens added Taybor Pepper. Client Brett Goode will snap for the Packers, while it is believed that Pepper will help relieve Ravens snapper Morgan Cox in the final pre-season game on Thursday.
