Snapchat is one of the most frequently used apps in the world. It's a quick form of communication that isn't just used by Millenials or teenagers -- NFL players also share their lives on Snapchat.
Strangely enough, one player can thank the app for landing him a job with his former team. Tony McDaniel shared on Snapchat that he was in a TSA line at the Atlanta airport. His agent, David Canter, saw the photo and asked where he was headed.
Tony snapped he was at an airport flying to Seattle. I let team know it was a free look & see if he was in shape. Workout/physical today— DEC Management (@davidcanter) August 15, 2016

After hearing his client was flying to Seattle to see some family and friends, Canter promptly contacted the Seahawks.
"[Seahawks director of pro personnel] Dan Morgan and I got into a text message exchange," Canter said via ESPN. "I said to them last week, 'Hey, Tony's going to be in town. It's a free workout. Worst-case scenario, you bring him in, he looks like crap, he stays home. You don't even have to pay for a flight.'"
McDaniel, 31, wound up working out for the Seahawks on Monday and was signed afterwards.
He played two seasons in Seattle from 2013-14, starting 29 games. He's not guaranteed a spot on the 53-man roster, but at least it's an opportunity, and he has Snapchat to thank for it.
