Texans extend long snapper Weeks

Posted Mar 5, 2012

The Houston Texans have signed LS Jon Weeks to a contract extension, it was announced today.


The Texans have signed long snapper Jon Weeks to a contract extension, the team announced today. Terms of the contract extension were not disclosed.

Weeks, 26, signed with the Texans as a street free agent in 2010. He has been on-target on all 288 of his punt, field goal and extra-point snaps over the last two seasons.

"Glad to have Jon back long-term," special teams coordinator Joe Marciano said Monday. "The guy’s been a money snapper. He’s been consistent, been dependable, reliable and (an) overall good guy."

Last season, Weeks helped kicker Neil Rackers set franchise single-season records with 32 field goals, 38 field goals attempted and 135 points. Rookie punter Brett Hartmann set a franchise record with a 44.4 gross punt average. In 2010, Weeks snapped on a team-record 43 extra points and helped Rackers tie the team record with 124 points.

“He hasn’t had a snap where we couldn’t get the ball off," Marciano said. "I just looked at punt snaps. He had a few that were maybe a little bit high or a little bit low, but anytime you can snap the ball and the punter don’t have to move his feet laterally left or right, they’re pretty good snaps. We call that 'keep your punter on line,' so he can hit the target.”

The Texans have not officially announced a new contract for running back Arian Foster. Foster's agent, Mike McCartney, said Monday that Foster and the Texans had agreed to a five-year deal.
