Bengals have invited four non-turtle long snappers for a visit this week

Here's where we stand with long snappers. Brad St. Louis is going to snap at least one more game; why not give him a last chance in a critical divisional game, makes sense (that's sarcasm). On Tuesday, the Bengals gave Nathan Hodel a look; he left Cincinnati without a reported contract. On Thursday, the Bengals released Geoffrey Pope and signed "The Stuka", Dan Skuta, off the team's practice squad.

This has led to speculation that the Bengals are planning to use that eighth spot for a long snapper. It makes sense. If Shayne Graham and Kevin Huber need work on the timing with a long snapper, then signing a long snapper to the practice squad wouldn't affect your roster. And if Brad St. Louis, who has to be under more pressure than anyone on this squad, falters again, then the Bengals can sign the long snapper off the practice squad and plug him in immediately.

Where they stand now is finding that long snapper.

The Bengals keep bringing them in. Joe Reedy writes:

The Bengals worked out Bryan Pittman and Clark Harris on Thursday. Pittman, who spent the last six seasons with Houston, worked out with the Chargers on Tuesday while Harris played four games with the Texans last year. The team also recently worked out Ryan Neill, who was Buffalo’s long snapper the last two seasons, while Nathan Hodel was in for a visit.

That makes four long snappers the Bengals have worked out this week. My ultimate question is this:

If you're so worried about the long snapper on this team, why would you have the guy that's about to lose his job baked under so much pressure during an important division game?
