Snapping Update Before the Super Bowl

The Super Bowl will feature snappers Rick Lovato for Philadelphia and Joe Cardona for New England.  Lovato is making his Super Bowl debut, while Cardona is making his second consecutive appearance.

Leading up to the Super Bowl, two snappers recorded tackles in playoff games, as Zach Wood (Saints) had a solo tackle in the Wild Card game and Beau Brinkley (Titans) has an assisted tackle in the Divisional round.

Two additional snappers have signed contracts for next season, as Andrew East signed with the Raiders for a second consecutive season, while Drew Ferris signed with the Buccaneers.  Ferris was signed after a strong showing at the Husted Kicking Pro Free Agent Specialists Camp held in Mobile, Alabama around the Senior Bowl.  The camp featured 16 snappers that qualified for the event and a few more are expected to get NFL workouts in the coming weeks.

Finally, the NFL special teams annual coaching carousel continues to spin.  As of right now, only the Colts have a vacancy.  Below are the new special teams coaches and their respective teams.
