Beau Brinkley, long snapper, Tennessee Titans
The former walk-on at Mizzou has had quite the NFL career. And the Titans aren’t bringing in any competition in the middle of camp.
Brinkley won the job in 2012 and remains their guy.
The Kansas City native enters his eighth season in Tennessee, and is in the the last year of his five-year contract he signed in 2015.
Kentrell Brothers, outside linebacker, Minnesota Vikings
Brothers has played in 38 games and has been a steady special teams player during his first three seasons with the Vikings.
This season, he’ll battle fifth-round draft pick Cameron Smith, among other first- and second-year pros who can switch from middle to outside.
It’s his special teams play that has helped him continue his NFL career and will help him be on an NFL roster for a fourth season.
Sean Culkin, tight end, Los Angeles Chargers
Culkin is the third tight end on the depth chart behind Virgil Green and Hunter Henry.
He enters his third season with the Chargers after making the team as an undrafted free agent. Used mainly as a blocker, Culkin has one reception for 24 yards. He appeared in 12 snaps a game last season for the Chargers.
This season, he’ll battle four players for the third TE spot.
