Cowboys sign long snapper Ladouceur to five-year deal

L.P. LaDouceur AP

In a move that Jerry Jones deserves all the credit in the world for, the Cowboys have secured an important piece for the next five years.

According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, the Cowboys signed long snapper L.P. Ladouceur to a new five-year contract, which included a $600,000 signing bonus.

“They wanted him, and he wanted to be there,” agent Gil Scott said. “It’s all good from that standpoint. You always wonder if you can get more in free agency. Maybe? Maybe not. When you’ve played in one place and want to remain a Cowboy for your career, that transcends everything else.”

Ladouceur would have been an unrestricted free agent. He’s been with the team since 2005.

    Did the agent say that with a straight face?

    I get it, having a dependable long snapper is important. But did he really anticipate a free agent bidding war?

    Nothing like continuity on special teams to put you over the top…

    Sometimes the ones that go unnoticed are the most important.

    Say what you want, but this is good news. Sadly it is one of the few smart moves Jerry has made recently. So obviously Stephen did this deal while Jerry was away.

    A long snapper don’t mean much if your holder blows the snap ;)

    I’m gonna start practicing my long snapping, is say they have a pretty good life. Good pay, not too much grueling work, and not always in the spotlight. Pretty solid!

    If you think long snapper’s aren’t important, try getting through a game with a bad one and tell us how you feel then. Or just ask the Raiders.

    If this were a giants move all the giant fans would be pounding their chests talking about how solid the move was and this is why they are so solid and Jerry Reese is the greatest ever. Shut up already you bums
