The Dallas Cowboys are parting with longsnapper L.P. Ladouceur after 16 seasons with the club and are in talks with have signed Rams free agent Jake McQuaide, according to ESPN’s Todd Archer. It would make sense that the Cowboys want to poach LA’s longsnapper, as special teams coordinator John Fassel went from the Rams to Dallas in 2020 and also took kicker Greg Zuerlein with him.

This would nearly complete the circle for Fassel and the Cowboys. Hold onto your Johnny Hekkers everybody.

McQuaide, 33, entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State in 2011. He has been the longsnapper in all 160 regular season Rams games ever since, plus six postseason games. He is a two-time Pro Bowler and most recently signed a three-year contract in 2018. We haven’t discussed the possibility of LA having to find a new longsnapper, but now that is exactly what they have to do.
