Redskins sign long snapper

Wonder if they have decided to go younger and cheaper from Big Red?

Re: Redskins sign long snapper

I was watching a Video of him on the Redskins blog and he guy has terrific accuracy on his snaps along with great technique. Don't know if the plan is to replace Albright but Sundberg looks like he has a future.

Re: Redskins sign long snapper

I was surprised when I read the news.. Since Albright always play good, as in snapping with accuracy and all.. But he's getting old, I guess it might be time to find new one..

Re: Redskins sign long snapper

I'm not sure that I understand the argument to go cheaper. It's not like the Red Snapper is pulling down the big bucks.

Don't think just cheaper, think 13 years younger! Of course, I don't think the Long snapper should be a specialty position like kicker or punter. He should be a guy who takes regular reps, and can step in at C any day of the week.

Re: Redskins sign long snapper

Albright was a vet min guy... so where's the cheaper angle coming from? Maybe he's just not a good tipper.

Re: Redskins sign long snapper

Re: Redskins sign long snapper

I'm sure this: Date of birth: May 1, 1971 (1971-05-01) (age 38) has nothing to do with it. Last I heard he was a vet min. player so it's not expense.

I think it's great they are addressing the OL even if it includes the specialty positions like long snapper.

Re: Redskins sign long snapper

Perhaps Shanahan is trying to hold true to his word and have competition at every position.

The Red Snapper was the least of our worries.

Re: Redskins sign long snapper

we haven't cut Albright or named this guy the starter yet or anything

Re: Redskins sign long snapper

He might just be another Jeremy Cain...then again, the Redskins had worked out a few other long snappers in recent weeks and Albright isn't getting any younger (though how young do you have to be to snap the ball?)
