Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

I never understood the point of a long snapper and why the kicker or punter can't do both. It seems like a wasted roster spot to me.
Saints Head Coach Tom Fears thought the same thing ONCE. Signed a Punter/Wide Receiver. Remember his name? That's how that worked out.

Re: 2016 New Orleans Saints: Roster Outlook

It should be something they can do to be honest
There is no excuse for it. I know the kicking is a bit different but look at Rugby were a fly half can kick the ball on the drop,often positionally very well and also takes the place kicking. I know the timing is different but if trained properly i see no reason a player could learn. Same with a centre really,why cant they learn to snap longer from a younger age

Cooks and Snead as average
Stopped reading. Neither elite at the moment but well above average
