    Okay, maybe it's not THAT exciting, but it's good to know that our GM is paying attention to the details. After the draft, he signed arguably the highest-rated long snapper coming out of college, and he will compete with a guy who was signed in January.

    I was surprised how light these guys are (about 250 pounds). Much lighter than a typical center. I guess it's because they have to run downfield after the ball is punted.

    Here's the article:

    What I found interesting is how much they worked some of these kids in prep for the free agent signing after the draft.. kinda takes the thought of them throwing away that last pick in the 7th round right in the trash basket.

    What a market after the draft.. if I am a player.. and I slide past say the 4th or 5th round.. I won't want to be drafted.. instead I wait instead an try to catch on with a team of my choosing..

    I always liked Davis and am glad he's staying with the team.
