The Miami Dolphins agreed to terms with an in-house free-agent, long-snapper John Denney, the team announced Friday.

Terms: Not disclosed

ESPN 150 rank: Unranked

Grade -- B: Denney will enter his 13th season with the Dolphins. He’s been a solid and consistent long-snapper, playing in a franchise-record 192 straight games. Barring injury, Denney will play in his 200th game for Miami at midseason.

What it means: The Dolphins don’t have to worry about finding a new long-snapper. Denney has held that role for 12 straight years without any significant issues. He’s made a nice career out of having that distinct skill. Denney also is Miami’s player rep for the NFLPA.

What’s the risk: Denney’s long-snapping is a skill that doesn’t appear to be going away anytime soon. Unless he unexpectedly gets the yips in his 13th season, there’s not much risk involved.
