New York Giants 2022 Training Camp Roster Preview: LS Casey Kreiter

Casey Kreiter has been one of the more underrated members of the Giants since 2020, and that's a good thing.

New York Giants long snapper Casey Kreiter is probably one of the Giants whose name you don't hear throughout a season.

And that's a good thing because it means the DeWitt, Iowa native, is doing his job, which is to long-snap for the kicking battery on punts and place-kicks.

It's an underrated role, but those who remember the final play of the Giants' 2002 Wild Card game vs. the 49ers no doubt can appreciate the stress-free performance Kreiter delivers every week.

Kreiter played his college ball at Iowa but went undrafted. He signed with the Cowboys after the 2014 draft, but in two summers, he could not land on the 53-man roster.

Kreiter found success at his next stop, with the Broncos, where he won the starting job in the summer of 2016. However, his season ended on December 16 of that year when he landed on injured reserve. Still, Kreiter would go on to have a home with Denver, even making his lone Pro Bowl to date as a member of the Broncos in 2019.

During the 2020 off-season, Kreiter signed with the Giants on a one-year deal to replace long-time long snapper Zak Deossie, who had retired. Kreiter has been solid since and was re-signed by the Giants in 2021 and again this past off-season.
