Marshfield’s Triner signs with Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Sports – The Enterprise, Brockton, MA

Long snapper Zach Triner will get a shot in his specialist role with the Bucs.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may not have a head coach, but they just may have themselves a long snapper.

The Buccaneers have signed Marshfield High School product Zach Triner to a reserve/future contract.

Triner, 27, was originally signed by the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent out of Assumption College on Jan. 5, 2017, but he was released by that team on May 5 of that year.

Signed by Green Bay on Dec. 27, 2017, the 6-foot-2, 247-pounder spent the final week of that season on the Packers’ practice squad and went to training camp with them in 2018, but he lost out in a duel for the team’s long-snapping job with Hunter Bradley, a seventh-round draft pick out of Mississippi State.

In Tampa Bay, Triner joins a team whose longer snapper the past two seasons, Garrison Sanborn, is 33 years of age and due to become a free agent in March.

Triner began his athletic career in college as a lacrosse player at Siena College, but he transferred to Assumption to play football. He lettered in both sports at Marshfield, playing defensive end, guard and long snapping for the Rams in football.

A defensive end-long snapper at Assumption, Triner appeared in 25 games for the Greyhounds, registering 66 tackles and 8-1/2 sacks with them.

This is a time of transition for the Buccaneers, who, in the wake of a second consecutive 5-11 finish, moved quickly in firing head coach Dirk Koetter hours after their 34-32 season-ending loss to Atlanta last Sunday.
