Long Snapping Update After Conference Championship Games

It will be the Eagles and Chiefs in the Super Bowl and the game will feature experienced snappers on both teams. Rick Lovato (Eagles) and James Winchester (Chiefs) each won Super Bowls and this will be Winchester’s third Super Bowl appearance and Lovato’s second.

There were no tackles in punt coverage until yesterday’s Conference Championship games when Lovato added an assisted tackle and Cal Adomitis (Bengals) had a solo tackle.

Since the end of the regular season, one snapper, Joe Fortunato, signed a reserve/future contract with the Cardinals. Another free agent snapper, client Harrison Elliott, had a tryout with the Packers but was not signed.

Morgan Cox of the Titans was voted the best long snapper on the first-ever NFLPA All-Pro team selected solely by NFL players, while Andrew DePaola (Vikings) and Nick Moore (Ravens) were selected as the AP All-Pro team snappers. The entire AP All-Pro voting results, including the 12 snappers that received at least one vote, can be found here.
