Long Snapper Jason Kyle Joins New Orleans Saints


The Saints announced today that they have parted ways with veteran LS Kevin Houser, to acquire what they feel is an upgrade at the position, LS Jason Kyle.

“Jason is a quality veteran player and we saw in him a chance to upgrade our kicking game,” Loomis said. “I’ve known him since we drafted him in Seattle and going up against him twice a year for the last eight seasons with Carolina, he has always been impressive. I’d also like to thank Kevin for nine seasons of excellent service to the Saints and wish him all the best in the future.”

Houser had been with the Saints since 2000 when they drafted him in the seventh round, he played in 144 career games.

Kyle has been in the league for 14 years, spending the bulk of his career with the Carolina Panthers (2001-08) starting in 120 consecutive games.
