The Kansas City Chiefs are in Mobile, Alabama scouting players that will participate in this weekend’s Senior Bowl.
We’ve already heard the team has met with a couple of the prospects and this morning we’ve got a report that the team met with long snapper Carson Tinker.
Tinker played his ball at Alabama and he is currently ranked as the best long snapper in the draft by NFL Draft Scout.
The Chiefs currently have a long snapper in Thomas Gafford. He’s been with the team since the second half of 2008. Gafford’s contract is up, however, and he will become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year.
The Chiefs may be bargain-hunting here but I would just cough up the money for Gafford. Long snapper is never a problem until it is. We’ve rarely heard Gafford’s name in the last few years and that is a good thing.
