Jonathan Condo (born August 26, 1981) is an American football long snapper for the Oakland Raiders in the National Football League (NFL). He played college football for the University of Maryland, and signed with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent in 2005. He has been selected for the Pro Bowl twice.

High school career

Condo played high school football at Philipsburg-Osceola Area High School. There he was an All-State linebacker. He also played as a running back and punter. He participated in the Big 33 Football Classic and still holds many of school's football records.

He was an All-State selection in baseball, as a catcher on the P-O baseball squad, and in his senior year he won the PIAA Wrestling AAA classification 275 weight limit championship. He finished the year with only one blemish on his record.

College career

Condo attended the University of Maryland, where he played for the Maryland Terrapins football team. He became the team's long snapper as a sophomore and also served as a backup defensive end.

Professional career

Dallas Cowboys

Condo was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Dallas Cowboys after 2005 NFL Draft. Although he made the team as the long snapper over Jeff Robinson and played in the first three games, the team decided to waive him because he was struggling with errant snaps.

New England Patriots

On January 19, 2006, he was signed to a futures contract by the New England Patriots. He was released on August 21.

Oakland Raiders

Condo in November 2008

On November 29, 2006, he was signed by the Oakland Raiders to their practice squad and would become the team's long snapper the next year.

Condo was an exclusive rights free agent in 2008, but the Raiders re-signed him. On October 19, in a game against the New York Jets, the Raiders were forced to punt on a 3 and out. Condo directly snapped the ball to outside linebacker Jon Alston, who ran it for 22 yards on a fake punt play. He was added to the Pro Bowl for 2010 after kicker Sebastian Janikowski made 33 field goals and punter Shane Lechler posted a 47.0 average.

On July 27, 2011, the Oakland Raiders re-signed Condo to a three-year deal. He was again selected to play in the 2012 Pro Bowl. He joined teammates punter Shane Lechler, kicker Sebastian Janikowski, and defensive lineman Richard Seymour.

On September 10, 2012, Condo left a game against the San Diego Chargers with a concussion. In his absence, the backup long snapper, Travis Goethel, botched two snaps and had another punt blocked.[1] The Raiders went on to lose the game 22-14, and much of the blame was put on the special teams' miscues.

On August 4, 2013, Condo signed a three-year contract extension with the Oakland Raiders.[2]
