 FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -The Atlanta Falcons switched long snappers on Tuesday, releasing Boone Stutz and signing veteran Mike Schneck.
The 6-foot-2, 237-pound Schneck was selected for the 2005 Pro Bowl with the Buffalo Bills. He also played for Buffalo in 2006 after starting his career in 1999 with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Stutz signed with the Falcons last year and handled long snapping duties in 20 games.
A high snap from Stutz cost kicker Morten Andersen a shot at a 35-yard field goal in a 27-20 loss to Carolina on Sept. 23.
Houston's Dunta Robinson blocked a field goal attempt by Andersen in the Falcons' 26-16 win last Sunday. It appeared Stutz double-clutched on his snap, allowing Robinson to get a legal early jump on his rush.
The Falcons (1-3) play at Tennessee on Sunday.
