One bad snap in the regular season and the world is going to explode. Probably a prudent move, but this has bad publicity guarantee in almost every scenario I can dream up.

This doesn't seem good.

Trading the Safety recently who has no real history with the team is okay. They might have released him anyway.

Trading Matthews was a necessary evil. He had one year remaining on his contract, they supposedly were struggling to agree on $, he was blocking Agholor, they were desperate for a starting CB and it finishes the Chip purge.

Dorrenbos has been around for 20 years, or so it seems. It is one thing to release him and let him catch on somewhere to his liking, it is another to trade him for a 7th rounder. If he was okay with the trade, then I am too. It feels disrespectful and they got virtually nothing for him.

That's the whole thing - it's one thing to make it clear he's training the younger guy Lovato. Keep him on for another year until we definitely have him replaced, and say a well timed goodbye. Just trading him for a 7th in late August?! As a franchise, when it comes to bad PR we're on the same level as the Oakland (sorry Las Vegas in 3 years thx loyal fans) Raiders.

For everyone's sake, I hope Lovato is putting in extra time practicing those snaps.

I don't get this move. A 7th is pretty damn close to being worthless. Dorenbos was a dependable long snapper and a fan favorite. I don't see any upside here, just the unknown with the new long snapper. I know it is a cliché but, if ain't broke, don't fix it.

He's a 37 year old long snapper. I liked the guy, but this isn't going to have an impact on the field.

We got a draft pick for a long snapper. That should be the primary take away here.

See...we can agree.

He is 37 and he got hurt and gave way to a younger guy just like He got his job when Mike Bartrum did before him. Getting a pick, any pick, for a long snapper approaching retirement is a coup. I am a little surprised at the angst by some.

I think it's just nostalgia. He was long-tenured and has a great story. But this will inevitably have virtually no impact on the field (although I fucking cringe at the thought of a bad snap by the new guy).

If we can use that 7th to move up in the draft, it will be well worth it.

At best, this is an unpopular move. We're sentimental creatures.

At worst, this was poorly thought out and an unecessary risk. Either way, this was never going to be well received, so the WTFs are understandable. Let's hope those end here and not over the head of our punter.

I am not too worried about the new guy, he did just fine last year. You are dead on about the pick though and the impact of the onfield product.

I really like Dorrenbos but he's 37 and Lovato is 24 and did a good job last year when Dorrenbos was hurt. Would/will JD be able to stay healthy and when is a good time to make the move to a younger replacement? I get people struggling with the business side, but getting a draft commodity for a 37 year old part time player isn't bad, it just sucks to lose a guy we all like.

The business side of the NFL is never pleasant, but we got something in exchange for a 37 year old player when we have a decent 25 year old to replace him already on the roster.

What makes it hard for people to take is how likeable Dorenbos is.

They should've had Dorenbos do a magic trick during the national anthem or something. Then trade him. laugh.gif

No...Celek did it before the got Lovato if I recall correctly and when Celek got hurt Trey Burton came in for a field goal.

I could be wrong though
