Washington Re-Signs Tress Way

4:54pm: Ian Rapoport of NFL.com (Twitter link) reports that it’s actually a four-year extension for Way — as noted below, the club announced the deal as a five-year extension, but was likely counting 2016, when Way was already under contract as an ERFA, as one of the years. The new deal is worth $9.4MM, per Rapoport, and contains $2.95MM guaranteed and a $1.25MM signing bonus.

3:46pm: Washington re-signed Tress Way to a five-year extension that would keep the third-year punter in D.C. for the decade’s remainder, Tarik El-Bashir of CSNMidAtlantic.com tweets.

Washington previously tendered the exclusive-rights free agent but elected to lock him up long-term.

Way, who will turn 26 in April, played in all 16 Washington contests upon taking over as the team’s punter in 2014. Arriving as an undrafted free agent in ’14, Way finished 13th last season with a 46.1-yards-per-punt average.┬áThe University of Oklahoma product boasted a 47.5-yard average in 2014.
