It is a new year and the 2017 NFL regular season is complete. The final week of the regular season marked the debut of Jeff Overbaugh. Overbaugh snapped well for the Vikings in place of Kevin McDermott, who was placed on injured reserve. Earlier in the week, Overbaugh was signed after a workout that also included veteran snapper Justin Drescher.
The Packers added Zach Triner to its practice squad a few days ago. Now that the team’s season is over, he will likely sign a contract for next season in Green Bay. Lost in the shuffle of last week’s snapping news was a workout the Bucs conducted with snappers Nolan Frese and Drew Williams.
In addition to any new snapper signings, Longsnap.com will be covering the various special teams coaching changes, veteran free agency and the top prospects for the NFL Draft during the coming weeks.
Zak DeOssie finished the season with six tackles, four of which were solo tackles, and is the champion again for snapper tackles in punt coverage. This is his sixth title in the last seven seasons. In 2015, when he did not finish first, DeOssie missed the last few weeks of the season. In Week Seventeen, Jon Condo (Raiders) and Rick Lovato (Eagles) added solo tackles, while Colin Holba (Jaguars) added an assist.
The final NFL Long Snappers Chart for the 2017 season is below.
