Week Eleven was generally an uneventful one for snappers, although kicking operation issues continued in Green Bay and, at least this week, in Arizona. After Sunday’s game, the Cardinals waived Beau Brinkley. With a bye this week, it is unclear if Arizona plans to sign a new snapper or if they expect injured Aaron Brewer to return.
Zach Triner returned for the Buccaneers yesterday after being injured in Week One. Carson Tinker, who filled in well in Triner’s absence, remains on the Bucs roster for now.
Former NFL Draft pick Randy Chevrier spent most of his career snapping in the CFL before retiring in 2017. Chevrier, who is 45 years old, made news this past week when he came out of retirement to sign with the practice roster of the Calgary Stampeders.
A quick college snapping note about a snapper who is also versatile. In this case, it does not mean he can play another position, but he does have other valuable skills. Pittsburg State freshman snapper Timmy Malinowski was an off-field hero recently when he was able to fix the team bus on the way to an away game.
Four long snappers recorded tackles in punt coverage this week. Josh Harris (Falcons), Reid Ferguson (Bills) and Rick Lovato (Eagles) had solo tackles, while Clark Harris (Bengals) added an assisted tackle.
