After losing Pro Bowler Jake McQuaide, the Dallas Cowboys have reportedly hired a pair long snappers to help them.
According to Tom Pelissero, NFL Network:
Sources say that the Cowboys have signed long snapper Matt Overton to the practice squad and Tucker Addington to replace Jake McQuaide, who suffered a torn quadriceps.

McQuaide signed with Dallas in 2012, after having spent the remainder of his 10 NFL seasons playing with the Rams.
The former Ohio State Buckeye was a two-time Pro Bowler and has been among the most successful at his job ever since he joined the league in 2011.
