Rams long snapper Jake McQuaide gets a contract extension

The questions of whether or not contract extensions are coming for players like Buccaneers quarterback Josh Freeman and Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz have been popular ones to discuss this offseason.

Not so the contract status of Rams long snapper Jake McQuaide, but Freeman and Cruz are still looking for new deals while the ink is drying on a four-year pact for McQuaide with St. Louis. The Rams announced the deal, without any financial details but with a picture of McQuaide putting pen to paper, on Monday.

McQuaide has played all 32 games for the Rams over the last two seasons after signing with the team as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State and beating out incumbent Chris Massey. He’s made three tackles on special teams over that period.

Long snappers don’t tend to bask in much limelight if they avoid blunders, so McQuaide doesn’t have the biggest profile. He does make an appearance in a trick kicking video that Rams kicker Greg Zuerlein and punter Johnny Hekker made with a group called Dude Perfect and snaps a ball into a basket from a great distance, though, so perhaps he’ll have a higher profile by the end of his new deal.

    They will be a better team with a worse record. Timing is everything. Hawks and 9ers are awesome. It will come down to injuries. Doesn’t it always depend on luck?

    The happiest guy in the NFL right now is the mostly anonymous Jake McQuaide.
