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.
