Position: Deep snapper
Summary: Ladouceur didn't have a bad snap the entire season and dealt with two different holders, Chris Jones and Brian Moorman. The Cowboys brought in deep snapper Charley Hughlett in training camp with the hopes of challenging Ladouceur for his spot on the roster, but it didn't happen.
Why keep him: He's a productive veteran player who said he's not asking for big money. Ladouceur understands there are numerous deep snappers who became unrestricted free agents this spring, but he feels that the Cowboys should keep the status quo because of his consistency.
Why let him go: The Cowboys could go younger at this position, and they did sign Hughlett to a futures contract with the goal of possibly replacing Ladouceur.
Best guess: He remains with the team. While the Cowboys have salary-cap issues -- they are $26 million over -- once the franchise gets under the cap, they should be able to bring Ladouceur back.
