FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) -The Atlanta Falcons switched long snappers on Tuesday, releasing Boone Stutz and signing veteran Mike Schneck.
Schneck was a 2005 Pro Bowl pick 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 season 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 Andersen's field goal attempt in the Falcons' 26-16 win last Sunday. It appeared Stutz double-clutched on the snap, allowing Robinson to get a legal early jump on his rush.
