Name: Lonie Paxton Pos: Long Snapper Ht, Wt: 6’2″, 270 Age: 34 Exp: 12 College: Sacramento State Lonie Paxton has been the Denver Broncos‘ long snapper for three seasons, and has been virtually invisible during that time. For a long snapper, that’s the highest praise — if you’ve been noticed, it means you did something wrong. 2011 Analysis: One bad snap vs. the Patriots on an extra point, that I recall. Of course, I was there in person, the first home Broncos game I had ever attended as a fan, and I am a terrible jinx to the team, so it wasn’t Paxton’s fault at all. Paxton was excused from the Broncos’ Divisional playoff game for personal reasons. Contract Status: Signed through 2013 ($875,000 in 2012). 2012 Outlook: The Broncos have brought in competition for Paxton in the form of undrafted rookie Aaron Brewer. That’s somewhat of an odd thing for a team to do; I don’t recall the Broncos carrying two long snappers into camp, ever (though I could be wrong). Still, no matter how pe...
