The Denver Broncos will keep their Pro Bowl long snapper; signing Casey Kreiter to a one year deal. The long snapper position isn’t one voted on for the Pro Bowl, which means Kreiter was selected by the coaching staff for the AFC. Anthony Lynn of the Los Angeles Chargers picked Kreiter for his long snapper.
“That was a coach’s choice,” Broncos special teams coordinator Tom McMahon told 9News in January. “I think Anthony Lynn must have a great ability to identify personnel because he picked Casey and that’s what I think of Casey – it’s earned and deserved.”
Kreiter, 28, played 146 total snaps without an unplayable delivery in 2018.
He was signed by the Broncos in 2016 and was scheduled to become a free agent this offseason. His one-year deal is reportedly worth $800k, with a $100k workout bonus and another $100k roster bonus, per Mike Klis of 9News.
The #Broncos and, maybe more importantly, @thekidmcmanus get their Pro Bowler back. https://t.co/5a7MuppKI8— Ian St. Clair (@IanStClair) March 7, 2019
