Windt (6-1, 252) is a three-year long snapper in his third year with the Chargers.
It was through a rather remarkable turn of events that led Mike Windt to become the Chargers’ long snapper as a rookie in 2010. After injuries sidelined David Binn, James Dearth and Ryan Neill, and the Chargers cut veteran Ethan Albright, they turned to the Cincinnati native and NFL rookie, who was solid through the team’s final 11 games. Windt’s accurate snaps helped stabilize an erratic season for the Chargers’ kicking duo of Nate Kaeding and punter Mike Scifres.
In 2011, Windt won a training camp competition with Binn, the Chargers’ all-time leader for career games played and retained the job as the team’s long snapper. Windt had a flawless season for the Chargers in 2011 and the team is looking for him to continue to get better.
