The Dallas Cowboys have been set in the long-snapper department for basically 100 years.
They’ve had L.P. Ladouceur since man discovered fire, and they got the band back together for a one-year deal heading in to 2018. That doesn’t mean L.P. doesn’t need help, though.
Just like we saw the Cowboys bring in some Dan Bailey and Chris Jones insurance in the form of Brett Maher, they’re seemingly doing so again. The team has reportedly signed long-snapper Scott Daly.
Extremely grateful to announce that today I have signed with the Dallas Cowboys! Would like to thank my family, friends and everyone who have helped me reach this point in my journey! All glory to God! #CowboysNation pic.twitter.com/NY2ca0a67f— Scott Daly (@sdaly61) April 16, 2018
With offseason programming officially getting going, the Cowboys need players to take snaps, and they theoretically want to rest the players most important to them. Good.
Scott Daly has had an interesting path to the Dallas Cowboys, and he’s been heralded before. Maybe the team wants him as insurance but also as a potential long-term project past the one-year deal Ladouceur.
“Daly got the size. He’s 250 pounds. He ran OK – 5.05, 5.08 (seconds) in that area,” NFL Network analyst, Mike Mayock, said on The Jack Swarbrick Show. “So, if you can be a consistent long snapper, you can play a lot of years in this league and have a pretty good living.”
Welcome aboard, Scott.
