It's a Snap: Redskins Re-sign Albright

The Washington Redskins completed the signing of long snapper Ethan Albright on Thursday.

Albright played in all 16 games last season and was flawless as the Redskins' long snapper. He has been a staple on the Redskins special teams units with his consistency, accuracy and experienced leadership.

The 6-5, 265-pounder, easily identified around Redskins Park, by his bright red hair, is a dependable veteran, having played in 154 games, including a current nine-year streak in which he has not missed a contest.

Known as one of the NFL's best and most reliable long snappers, Albright has also made his share of plays on kickoff and punt coverage units, contributing 49 tackles during his career. He had four special teams tackles in 2004.

Albright joined the NFL as an undrafted free agent by the Miami Dolphins in 1994. He spent the first half of that season on the Dolphins practice squad before being released and finishing the year on Green Bay's practice squad. He rejoined the Dolphins in 1995, appearing in 10 games, before moving on to Buffalo (1996-2000) and now with Washington (2001-present).

Albright has appeared in 154 games in his career.
