Long snapper: Pro Bowler Josh Harris holds down the fort for L.A.

Maybe not the sexiest position on the roster (unless of course, you are Chargers legend David Binn dating Pam Anderson), but having a very capable long snapper is always a good thing.

Binn, of course, is the Chargers' career leader in games played and is a former Pro Bowler. An addition to the Chargers' Pro Bowl long snapping brotherhood is former Atlanta Falcon Josh Harris. The former Auburn Tiger will be taking over long-snapping duties from Matt Overton and is coming off his best season yet as a long snapper. 

In 2021, Harris was selected to his first Pro Bowl and also was recognized as a second-team All-Pro selection. For his efforts, the Chargers awarded him with a four-year, $5.6 million contract back in March to solidify the new special teams unit.

Playing the entirety of his career with the Falcons (156 games played since 2012), Harris also has a solid 28 total tackles to his credit. Though it remains to be seen if Harris can keep his Pro Bowl level of play going (and why wouldn’t he), his presence should be a welcome boost to the unit if everyone can coalesce together.
