Tanner Purdum is an American football long snapper for the New York Jets of the National Football League. He was signed by the Kansas City Chiefs as a street free agent in 2009. He played college football at Baker.


Kansas City Chiefs

On April 7, 2009, the Kansas City Chiefs signed Purdum with the intention of having him compete for the starting job of long snapper. On August 13, 2009, the Chiefs waived Purdum in favor of Thomas Gafford.

New York Jets
On February 5, 2010, the New York Jets signed Purdum to a three year contract after incumbent long snapper James Dearth, who was an unrestricted free agent at the time, had a few snaps that were "off the mark" in 2009. Purdum was recommended to the team by former Chiefs punter Louie Aguiar.

Purdum is married to his wife, Kara. He received his masters degree in education from Baker in 2009.
