Kyle Vasey To Sign Pro Contract With Atlanta Falcons
Penn State long snapper Kyle Vasey will sign a deal with the Atlanta Falcons.
Vasey got his first game action during his junior season, when he started all 13 games at long snapper. He made his first career tackle on punt coverage against Nebraska during that season, and was named Academic All Big-Ten.
The long snapper kept the starting job at long snapper for his senior year and helped Blake Gillikin to finish the season with a punt average of 44 yards, a Penn State season record. He capped off his Penn State career by winning the Jon Bruno Memorial Award, given to an outstanding member of the special teams unit, at the team’s end of season award banquet.
The long snapper also assisted kicker Jake Pinegar to a .963 extra point percentage in his first season as a Nittany Lion, the ninth-best percentage in program history.
Josh Harris, the Falcons current starting long snapper, signed a three-year contract with the squad this past November, so Vasey will likely compete for the back up spot.
