don't they tend to have pretty long careers in the NFL though, with a decent salary given their very limited snap counts?

The average pro experience for a snapper in 2017 was nearly six seasons, about twice the overall average career length. The average annual salary was a shade under $800,000, according to Spotrac, with the highest snapper pay at $1.4 million.
Not a bad job if you can get it.

I wonder if they'd consider asking Peitsch to greyshirt. Shannon has 2 more years of eligibility and you really don't need two long snappers. I doubt if asking this kid to delay enrolling would scare him off.

From what's been said from the experts is that this has always been the trend for ND taking a longsnapper. Alex will redshirt one year behind Shannon's last year for a year of mentoring. Then the job is his for the next four years and on his way out he will mentor his little grasshopper.
