The John Denney era could be over. On Monday morning, the Dolphins released their long snapper and longest-tenured player.
Denney, 40, was re-signed in February, setting the 40-year-old up for a 15th season in Miami. The good news is, that could still happen – the Dolphins are not rostering any other long snappers at the moment, so this could just be a bit of roster juggling from the Dolphins. Before the end of business on Tuesday, we should have a better picture of the Denney’s future.
Denney also boasts a streak of playing in 224 consecutive games, which is the longest active streak in the NFL. He’s tied for the longest streak ever for a long snapper and he’ll own that record outright if he plays somewhere in Week 1.
