INDIANAPOLIS – The Cowboys might have bigger business to do with players like Tony Romo and Anthony Spencer, but they also have smaller but important deals with players like long snapper L.P. Ladouceur.
Ladouceur is scheduled to hit unrestricted free agency next month, but the Cowboys met with his agent, Gil Scott, on Thursday at the NFL scouting combine.
Ladouceur just finished a five-year deal he signed back in 2008 that included an $800,000 signing bonus. Since joining the Cowboys in 2005, Ladouceur has not had a poor snap on punts or field goals. The Cowboys signed long snapper Charley Hughlett after the season ended. He went to training camp with the Cowboys last summer and was cut before the season started.
New special teams coach Rich Bisaccia dealt with injuries to his long snappers in his two years in San Diego, so Ladouceur’s dependability could help his cause.
