    Makes sense. The Bills will be doing a lot of punting this year…

    If long-snapper was Quarterback, the Bills would have an elite one in Sanborn. (Unfortunately, that is not the case.)

  5. The Steelers are Marching and the world cowers. The three rivers were made from your tears and we build boats. We build lots of boats. We walk beside pristine trophy cases and engraved gold. They say it's lonely at the top, but we sure like the view. says: Aug 29, 2014 8:39 PM

    Probably couldn’t be on a long snapper on any other team, except maybe the Browns. Congrats?

    Such a waste of a roster spot.

    On every team, not just the Bills…your center should be able to snap the ball.

    Rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. (Sigh).

    Did the Bills tell Sanborn that he will likely be playing in Canada by the end of that contract?

    I love the Buffalo throwback uniforms. That was from the glory years of attending Super Bowls….75 years ago now?

    Buffalo and Snapper are fish, Dolphins are a fish. Jets are a fish. Tom Brady is an over-rated wuss.

    Amazing all the fish connections in the AFC East.
