Dolphins re-sign veteran long snapper John Denney

The Dolphins re-signed John Denney, the team’s long snapper the past 14 seasons, to a one-year contract on Friday, Omar Kelly and Keven Lerner of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.. Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but it’s likely somewhere in the neighborhood of the $1 million salary he earned last season.

The 6-foot-5, 242-pound Denney, one of the oldest players in the NFL at 40, has not missed a game in his 14 seasons. He has appeared in 224 consecutive games since signing with the Dolphins as an undrafted rookie in 2005 — by far a team record and the longest active streak in the NFL. He trails only Hall-of-Fame quarterback Dan Marino (242) on the Dolphins’ all-time list for games played.

Denney was a three-year starter at defensive end at Brigham Young (2002-04), but won the Dolphins’ job of long snapper over incumbent Ed Perry and has stuck through the regimes of coaches Nick Saban, Cam Cameron, Tony Sparano, Joe Philbin, Adam Gase — plus interim coaches Todd Bowles and Dan Campbell — and now Brian Flores.

Denney, a two-time Pro Bowl selection, had been scheduled to hit free agency next month.
