Saints Ink Veteran Long Snapper Jason Kyle

The Saints have a new long snapper, as the team has signed veteran Jason Kyle, in the meantime releasing long snapper Kevin Houser.

“Jason is a quality veteran player and we saw in him a chance to upgrade our kicking game,” Saints General Manager Mickey Loomis said in a statement. “I’ve known him since we drafted him in Seattle and going up against him twice a year for the last eight seasons with Carolina, he has always been impressive. I’d also like to thank Kevin for nine seasons of excellent service to the Saints and wish him all the best in the future.”

The 37-year-old Kyle had spent the past eight seasons with the Panthers and has played in the league for 14 years. He’s a former fourth-round draft pick with the Seattle Seahawks in 1995, Kyle has also had previous stints with the Cleveland Browns, St. Louis Rams and the San Francisco 49ers.

Houser was drafted in the seventh round by the Saints in 2000.
