    One of those position that many take for granted until you lose your deep snapper.

    Charlie Hughlett was pretty good last year and is back for another turn this year. We just have to stop playing guys over 30 with high salaries. We need a youth movement in Dallas...

    You're worried about the age of your long snapper?

    According to the attached article, he hasn't had a bad snap since 2005. That's pretty impressive.

    So you bring both guys to camp. I don't care if he is over 30 he is a long snapper and he does a very good job.

    that so many who follow the Cowboys are clones of JJ. You want to hang on to older expensive players who are over their prime. You don't see New England hanging on to older players and handing out ridiculous contracts. They are even willing to let stars go like Welker before they overpay for players. We are doomed to mediocrity...

    A long snapper is out of his prime.

    wow such short memories. Do you want to remember what happened after we let robinson go to save some cap space?

    Do you want to take a chance on the game winning fieldgoal on a guy that is untested versus someone that has NEVER had a bad snap?

    Do you think a long snappers AGE matters at all?

    wow, just wow. Talk about not getting it.

    What part of bring them both to camp do you not get? Long snapper has one job and it is important. Why not ask about older kickers that are in the league why you are at it.

    Dallas is not building around a long snapper but as long as he can do his job of putting the ball on the mark with zip then keep on doing it.

    What kind of big contract do you think a LS is going to get? A punter,kicker or long snapper are the only positions that age is not much of a factor. This guy does his job better than any player on the team. He hasn't screwed up in years. I am all for resigning him to a reasonable contract and they shouldn't think twice about it.

    Long snappers are tremendously overrated.

    Until you don't have one.

    Sign him.

    After the 1st couple of snaps sail over the punters head or has no zip on it so that it can get blocked then it becomes a major problem.

    Or maybe like so many, you really have no clue about the "prime" of long snappers. Ladouceur is in his prime. Long snappers usually play through their mid-30s because they simply aren't on the field enough to wear out like position players.

    Signing a long snapper Ladouceur's age is far from abnormal, but I guess that makes others in the league clones of JJ, too. For instance, San Francisco signed its long snapper to a five-year deal in 2009. He was 32 at the time.

    Flawless long snappers are hard to find, so if you find one, you don't let go until it's necessary to let go.

    I like Hughlett, too, by the way, but there's no reason to take a risk with him when long snappers are relatively inexpensive.
