For snappers not on an NFL roster looking to play professionally, the options have traditionally been very limited. The Canadian Football League uses Canadian snappers and the many leagues that have tried to either compete with, or supplement, the NFL have not lasted long
One new option that seeks to be the exception to that rule is the Alliance of American Football. Slated to begin games early next year with eight teams, many experienced NFL administrators and a national television contact, the AAF will likely use dedicated snappers. The AAF recently announced its first 100 player signings and at least one snapper, James Fisher from North Dakota State, is among them having signed with the Phoenix team.
Time will tell if the AAF will be a viable option for snappers looking to gain experience outside of the NFL, but the early signs appear positive.
