Week Six of the NFL season is complete and included the regular season debut of Mitchell Fraboni, who snapped without incident for the Broncos last night and also recorded a tackle in punt coverage.
Fraboni was in the 2018 Draft class and another example of the perseverance and dedication required to snap in the NFL. Fraboni had NFL experience with the Texans and also snapped in the USFL and Spring League.
The Broncos signed another snapper to its practice squad along with Fraboni, Joe Fortunato, who has also been knocking on the door of an NFL career. Fortunato was part of the 2016 NFL Draft class and still looking for his NFL regular season debut. Fortunato was released from the Broncos practice squad before this week’s game. He was part of a the second workout earlier in the week for the Broncos that also included Thomas Fletcher, Brian Khoury, Garrison Sanborn and Rex Sunahara.
The Rams added veteran Kyle Nelson to its practice squad before this week’s action, although Matt Orzech snapped in the game. The Cowboys waived Tucker Addington from its practice squad and will use Matt Overton to snap while Jake McQuaide remains out.
Four snappers recorded tackles in punt coverage including Fraboni’s solo tackle, along with JJ Jansen (Panthers) also tallying a solo tackle and Jack Coco (Packers) and Ross Matiscik (Jaguars) adding assisted tackles.
