Sorry Brad, thanks for the Memories

Yesterday the Cincinnati Bengals released 10-year veteran Long Snapper Brad St. Louis. You should never know the name of your team's long snapper. If they are good, which Brad was for many years, most do not know who he is. But when they are bad they stand out. Unfortunately this season Brad was very bad, very very bad. So on Tuesday they made the move and released St. Louis and signed Clark Harris. Harris was recently released from the Houston Texans practice squad. Perhaps this is a move from Marvin to get some ideas of the Texans offense before the big matchup on Sunday. Since there are no official statistics regarding long snappers I can tell you that Clark Harris was drafted in the 7th round by the Green Bay Packers out of Rutgers. Harris saw action in four regular season games last year for the Texans. He has a neck beard in his NFL stock photo.....I really don't know what else to tell you about this guy other than he is not Brad St. Louis and hopefully we will no longer have to hold our breath when we go for FG or extra point.
