Colts Long Snapper Luke Rhodes Inks His Exclusive Rights Tender

On Monday long snapper Luke Rhodes signed his exclusive rights tender with the Indianapolis Colts, officially keeping him with the team for the 2018 season, Andrew Walker of Colts.com reports.

Rhodes entered the NFL in May 2016 as an undrafted college free agent linebacker with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and after his release during final cuts that September, he was picked up by the Colts and spent most of the season on the practice squad.

But last offseason, Rhodes — despite the fact he hadn’t snapped in a game since high school — was asked to compete with rookie Thomas Hennessy for the Colts’ long snapper role, a job he would eventually win out by the end of the preseason.
