Cowboys want to keep their long-time long snapper.

Each of the last two offseasons have seen the Cowboys say goodbye to some long-time veterans and superstars. Two years ago, they bid adieu to Tony Romo. It was last offseason that Jason Witten sailed into the sunset and Dez Bryant was released. That’s tough business.

There is really only one player left on the roster that has a resumé that can challenge those veterans as far as length of service and that’s long snapper L.P. Ladouceur. For 14 seasons in he has handled long-snapping duties for the Cowboys and it looks like a 15th is on its way. Dallas is expecting to re-sign him.

L.P. is the only current Cowboys player who had the privilege of playing at Texas Stadium, if that provides any perspective on how long he’s been around. He’s more than just someone with experience though, he’s one of the game’s absolute best. Despite the ups and downs of the special teams units overall, the one thing that is always constant is the snapping. Ladouceur never makes mistakes unless you want to include the phantom “snap infraction” call in the Washington game, which was really just a blown call by the referees.
