It seemed like the Buffalo Bills were brining in punters every other week in the 2018 season, and they'll likely need to find one this offseason. What they won't need to worry about is who will be snapping to that punter.

On Monday, the Bills  announced that have re-signed long snapper Reid Ferguson to a three-year contract extension.

Ferguson will be entering his third season in the National Football League. He was brought in as an undrafted free agent in 2016, was signed to the practice squad, and worked his way to the active roster. Ferguson was one of four former LSU Tigers on the Bills last season, along with Kyle Williams, Tre'Davious White, and linebacker Corey Thompson.

The Bills have had just two long snappers in the last 10 years. Reid Ferguson took over for Garrison Sanborn in 2016, after Sanborn spent eight seasons here in Buffalo.
