Packers Trade Long Snapper
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers traded long snapper J.J. Jansen to the Carolina Panthers on Monday for a future conditional draft pick.
Jansen won the Packers' long snapper job in training camp last season, becoming the successor to retired veteran Rob Davis.
But Jansen tore a ligament in his left knee in the Packers' final preseason game and was placed on injured reserve. The team signed Brett Goode, who went on to have a solid season.
Jason Kyle has been Carolina's long snapper since 2001 but remains unsigned.
