Week Three of the NFL season saw more special teams issues, including those impacting the normally reliable snapper Kyle Nelson of the 49ers. Nelson had multiple poor field goal and extra point snaps and was benched at the end of the game. Offensive lineman Justin Skule handled a late short snap. The team is expected to bring in some snappers for a tryout this week and it appears that Nelson’s issues were more mental than physical.
On a positive note, JJ Jansen of the Panthers made an athletic play to down a late game punt at the one-yard line, helping the team defeat the Chargers.
Snappers Andrew DePaola (Cardinals) and Garrison Sanborn (Jaguars) each had tryouts recently, but neither has been signed at this time.
Three snappers, Jacob Bobenmoyer (Broncos), Jon Weeks (Texans) and Morgan Cox (Ravens), each recorded solo tackles in punt coverage. The NFL Long Snappers Chart after Week Three is below.
