It has been something of a whirlwind in free agency for the Dallas Cowboys. Instead of the glacial pace of signing players, the new announcements just keep coming, and the latest is the signing of long snapper Trent Sieg.
Long snapper was the only position on the entire roster that the team did not have at least a placeholder under contract. It is not exactly a position that makes or breaks a team, but it can have a big impact if it goes wrong. For years, ever since the beginning of the L.P. Ladouceur era, and continuing through the Jake McQuaide and Matt Overton tenures, the Cowboys have basically had perfection at this role. Now Sieg, who has spent his entire NFL career to this point with the Raiders both in Oakland and Las Vegas, will be expected to continue that.
