The Jets filled a hole in their roster by re-signing long snapper Tanner Purdum, the team announced. Purdum signed a two-year contract, according to his agent, Rob Roche.

Purdum has been a steady long snapper since 2010. He was a non-tendered restricted free agent, meaning the Jets opted not to place the low tender ($1.32 million) on him with the hope of re-signing him at a lower price. Which is exactly what happened.

The Jets have another experienced long snapper on the roster, Travis Tripuka.
