After going undrafted in 2008 and not signing with an NFL team, Jon Weeks took a couple of years away from the NFL. He eventually returned to football and was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Texans.
Since that time, Weeks has been a staple on the Texans roster as the long snapper. He plays possibly the most underrated position on the entire team.
Weeks hasn’t missed a game his entire career, giving the Texans some ease, as they don’t have to worry about whether Weeks will be ready to go each week during a given NFL season.
The Texans long snapper has done so well for the franchise in his career that they even re-signed him back in 2012. He hasn’t left the team since then. Weeks is 33 years old. Even though he’s a special teams player, he has gained some stats too while with the Texans.
During his career, Weeks has a fumble recovery coming back in 2015. For his career, Weeks has recorded 10 tackles, with five of those coming in 2013.
Weeks has also played in a total of eight playoff games for the Texans. The team is 3-5 in those games, with two wins against the Cincinnati Bengals and a win over the Oakland Raiders in 2016.
Weeks was also a Pro Bowl selection in 2015.
