Bucs to sign former Bills long-snapper Garrison Sanborn



The Bucs are likely to have a new long-snapper in 2017, and longtime Bills snapper Garrison Sanborn, who played at Tampa Jesuit and FSU, has a good chance to be that player, signing a one-year contract on Tuesday after a workout.

Sanborn, 31, had been the Bills' snapper the past eight seasons before he was released earlier this month. The Bucs also have another former FSU snapper on roster in Dax Dellenbach, but he's yet to snap in an NFL game. Andrew DePaola, the Bucs' starter for the past three seasons, tore his ACL in last year's season finale and is recovering from surgery and unlikely to be healthy for the season opener; the Bucs opted not to tender him as a restricted free agent last week.

Sanborn has not missed a game in his his eight NFL seasons, playing in all 128 straight.
