Lions Re-Sign Don Muhlbach To One-Year Deal

One of the things that struck me as odd this offseason was that long snapper Don Muhlbach didn't receive a contract extension before free agency began. It was especially odd to me that no new deal was worked out last week once the Detroit Lions finally had some cap space. While long snapper is not a headline-grabbing position by any means, Muhlbach has been reliable for the Lions for eight years now.

On Tuesday after Stephen Tulloch was re-signed, I joked that Muhlbach was the next free agent priority for the Lions. As it turns out, he was actually the next free agent to re-sign with the team. From Tim Twentyman:

In all seriousness, this is an important move. You don't hear about Muhlbach too much, but that's because he's good at his job. Long snappers don't want to be talked about, because it usually means they botched a snap. As Twentyman said, this is an unsung type of signing, because it's important to have a good long snapper.
