    Lions long snapper Scott Daly not taking chance at NFL for granted


    Allen Park — Long snappers don’t like attention, because if people are talking about them, it’s usually because something went wrong. 

    Before Tuesday, Scott Daly was a wallflower at Lions training camp, blending into the background as a soon-be-defeated contender for veteran Don Muhlbach’s job in Detroit.

    But the unthinkable happened. Three weeks before the season, the Lions decided it was the end of the line for the 17-year veteran who had played in the second-most games in franchise history, essentially handing the job to Daly in the process. 

    It’s not exactly a bad snap that cost his team a game, but it thrust a spotlight on the reserved Daly, who understands his opportunity is the bittersweet result of a mentor and franchise icon losing his job.
