The Rams will be retaining a key member of their special teams unit, having come to terms on a three-year contract with long snapper Jake McQuaide.
McQuaide, 30, has served as the Rams' long snapper since he entered the league as an undrafted free agent out of Ohio State in 2011. He's made every long snap for the franchise since that season. He was slated to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year on March 14.
A Pro Bowl selection for his 2016 and 2017 seasons, McQuaide is instrumental in Greg Zuerlein and Johnny Hekker getting off successful kicks and punts. Zuerlein led the league with 158 points scored from 44 field goals and 38 extra points in 2017, becoming a Pro Bowler and a first-team All-Pro. And fielding McQuaide's snaps, Hekker has been to four Pro Bowls and has also been named a first-team All-Pro four times.
