Week Seventeen is complete and the regular season is over. For snappers, it was a relatively stable year, with the only changes resulting from injury and not due to performance.
Atlanta used three snappers, starting the season with Jeff Overbaugh before Josh Harris returned in Week Two. Harris was placed on injured reserve late in the year and replaced by Jon Condo in Week Fourteen.
Other changes occurred in Jacksonville, when Carson Tinker was placed on injured reserve after Week Five and replaced by Matt Overton. Rookie Trent Sieg replaced Andrew DePaola in Oakland after Week One. Kyle Nelson’s suspension led the Niners to add Colin Holba in Week Fourteen and Andrew East made his NFL debut in Week Fifteen after Nick Sundberg was placed on injured reserve.
Drew Scott worked out with Oakland this past week. Teams can start signing snappers for next year beginning today and Taybor Pepper has already signed with the Giants for the 2019 season.
Beau Brinkley of the Titans had the most tackles of any long snapper in punt coverage, finishing the year with five tackles, four of which were solo stops. Five tackles are the lowest total to lead all snappers since I have been tracking tackles since the 2000 season.
