Vikings pay up pretty big money to long-snapper Kevin McDermott 0. .

In the 2015 offseason, the Minnesota Vikings extended the contract for long-snapper Kevin McDermott in a two-year $1.26 million deal. Monday, they decided to extended his contract again to a $4 million four-year deal.

McDermott is officially getting paid $1 million a year to toss a ball back between his legs. This has got to be one of the highest paid long-snappers in the NFL. Or so we thought.

Looking further into it, McDermott is one of the lower paid long-snappers in the NFL at 23rd. Dolphins’ long-snapper John Denney is the highest paid in the league. He’s in a contract year, but over the past three years he’s made almost $3.5 million.

Alternatively, the lowest paid long-snapper is Oakland Raiders’ Andrew East who makes just $450,000 a year. The Raiders are unique on the long-snapper list because the other name who appears near the top of the rankings is that of Jon Condo who is actually the second highest paid long-snapper in the NFL, finishing out a 3-year $3.2 million contract in 2016.
