Denver Broncos longsnapper Casey Kreiter has made the Madden 19 worst players list in the unfamiliar position of tight end.

The Iowa grad, often unseen during game broadcasts, is happy to be the anonymous special team member, but #42 was happy to come out and give his take on his rating, describing it as “an honor”.

Kreiter is the 10th worst player in Madden 19, and the worst-rated Broncos player in the game, with his rating matching his jersey number.

The third-year pro, who was an undrafted free agent, does have some bragging rights with his rating higher than Joe Cardona —  a specialist snapper out of Navy — who became the fourth to be drafted when the New England Patriots selected him the fifth round in 2015.

However, Cardona does have a Super Bowl ring from Super Bowl LI.

Madden doesn’t utilise long snappers in the game, but does list them as tight ends, a position many of them are not too familiar with.

While NFL teams now deploy full-time specialists for long snapping, in the past teams used backup centers, tight ends or linebackers to fulfill the role on special teams.
