Colts make LS Luke Rhodes highest paid LS in the NFL

Recommended Posts

 

Rhodes signed with the Colts in 2016 (as a LB) after spending training camp with the Buccaneers. 

In 2017 the Colts asked him to help with LS duties (he had done snapping in HS) and won the job. 

Rhodes signed his exclusive rights contract in March (1 year/$720,000)

This is the only desirable situation that involves everyone knowing the long snapper’s name

Long snapper would be awesome to play. Get paid handsomely to toss a few balls under your butt and hold your ground. Ez money.

Can any Colts fan tell me if he truly had value to the team? Can he not be replaced by some average LS.

They have like, two billion dollars in cap space. If you're throwing out money, it's...

...yeah, I can't even fake this as some ground breaking signing.

To be fair, he's a former LB so basically it's like having an actual extra defender that knows how to hit and tackle during punts. Two players in one and all that.

He had four tackles last season, so it's not like he's racking up the tackles...

One of these days I'm going to bother learning who the NFL long snappers are like every other position.
