Pittman's loss was Houser's gain

After Kevin Houser lost his long-time long-snapping gig last month with the Saints in the haze of an investment scheme that caused multiple players — and coach Sean Payton — to lose big money, it was unclear whether Houser would have another shot.

He got one in Seattle, but only after the Seahawks’ long snapper emerged with an injury unrelated to football.

According to Howard Balzer of the Sports Xchange and ESPN.com’s Mike Sando, Bryan Pittman’s contract was terminated.  Balzer says the termination occurred with the designation “non-football injury.”  Both Balzer and Sando report that it’s a hand injury.

The specific injury and how Pittman got it isn’t known.

Maybe he was trying to get a kid out of the trunk of his car with a screwdriver.

    I think he broke his thumbs when someone slammed the car trunk on them.

    Pretty sweet Back to the Future reference there Florio. I wonder if he can play a nice cover of Johnny Be Good to boot…

    Who the hell is Pittman and how is the Saints’ loss on an investment scheme related to him? This whole post makes no sense to me.

    ♪ Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans
    ♪ Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
    ♪ There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
    ♪ Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Good!
    ♪ Who never ever learned to read or write so well
    ♪ But he could play the guitar just like aringin’ a bell. Go! go!…….
