Pontbriand is not a backup center. He has no position other than long snapper. He's about 255 lbs. He wasnt even considered for the job of Center the year the Browns lost LeCharles Bentley, his backup Bob Hallen and his backup Todd Washington to retirement, and Alonzo Ephraim to suspension. 4 centers. Plus Ross Tucker, Lennie friedman and finally Hank fraley. All in one preseason. Thats 7 centers that took snaps in front of him. Pontbriand didnt receive a single snap. He is not a center.
:maybe he is cheaper than jennings so we can save cap room.
Yes, Jennings' contract is a real burden on the salary cap.
