Mr. Dependable is coming back to the Detroit Lions for the 11th consecutive year.
Don Muhlbach — who? — might not be known to the casual fan, but he is as consistent as any player on the Lions’ roster.
Nobody is taken for granted more than this guy.
Muhlbach, the longer snapper, simply does his job with near perfection time after time after time.
Bad snaps for him have been as rare as playoff victories for the organization.
That’s why the Lions re-signed him to a one-year deal, keeping Muhlbach from possibly bolting to another team as a free agent for the second straight year.
The club confirmed the contract agreement Thursday. He’s expected to make around $1 million, slightly more than he made last year.
Muhlbach’s experience was valuable in working with rookie punter Sam Martin last season. The Lions will have a new kicker this coming season. Muhlbach’s influence should help with that transition, too.
Real happy for my man Muhl on signing a new deal. Management must have known it was my birthday today. Thanks guys!
