The Redskins re-signed longtime long snapper Nick Sundberg, the team announced, putting him in position to play into the next decade with the franchise. It’s a four-year deal running through 2020, Mike Jones of the Washington Post tweets. This marks Washington’s first re-signing of the offseason.
Serving as the Redskins’ primary long snapper since being acquired in 2010, Sundberg has played in 91 regular-season games with Washington. Sundberg’s previous deal paid him a career-high $1MM in base salary in 2016 and averaged $1MM annually. Considering Dolphins long snapper John Denney leads this anonymous group with with a $1.15MM-AAV contract, Sundberg’s next pact figures to be similar in value to his previous accord.
The 29-year-old specialist played in each of Washington’s 16 games in both 2014 and ’15 but missed two contests due to injury this season, inducing the Redskins to sign Rick Lovato as a free agent. Sundberg, though, returned to action soon after.
