Hallelujah!!!! The Steelers signed a long snapper. Now James Harrison can go back to doing what he does best; terrorizing quarterbacks. More importantly, we will no longer have to watch him endanger women and children (and low flying birds) with his poorly aimed long snaps that inevitably end up in the stands rather than in the punter’s hands.
The Steelers signed Jared Retkofsky as their new long snapper. James Harrison and James Farrior can both breathe a sigh of relief.
Retkofsky was in training camp in 2007 with the Steelers. However, he was beaten out by Greg Warren for the position. Retkofsky was an undrafted free agent from TCU.
I don’t know about you, but this is possibly the best day of my life. I never thought that news about a long snapper could bring me to tears, but I did in fact shed tears of joy when I heard that Retkofsky had been signed. If I had been forced to watch James Harrison launch one more high velocity brick into the endzone, I think I may have killed myself.
Jared Retkofsky is officially my favorite Pittsburgh Steelers player. Who woulda thunk it?
