David Aaron Binn (born February 6, 1972) is an American football long snapper who played in the National Football League (NFL) for eighteen seasons. He played college football for the University of California, Berkeley. He was signed by the San Diego Chargers as an undrafted free agent in 1994.
Binn, who is Jewish as is his father, attended San Mateo High School in San Mateo, California, and was a letterwinner in football, basketball, and golf. In football, he was a two-time All-Peninsula Athletic League honoree. He then played college football as a linebacker and long snapper for the University of California, Berkeley.
In the NFL, he has made himself known as one of the best longsnappers in the business. October 12, 2006, was Binn's 200th game. He joined Junior Seau and Russ Washington as the only other Charger players with more than 200 games played for the team.
Binn surpassed Junior Seau and Russ Washington with his 201st career game played as a Charger on November 19, 2006 making him the all-time leader. He was selected for the first time to the 2007 Pro Bowl squad, making him the eleventh selection from the 2006 Chargers chosen to represent the AFC in Hawaii. Binn suffered a hamstring injury in Week 1 of 2010 that ended his team-record streak of 179 consecutive games played.
