The Redskins reached an agreement with Nick Sundberg on the details of a contract on Sunday, preventing the long snapper from becoming a restricted free agent.
Sundberg, 25, agreed to four-year contract, according to multiple reports, and will be entering his fourth season with the Redskins.
He played in eight games last season, and his consistency was so highly regarded by the coaching staff that he was given the team’s “designated for return” label after breaking his left arm in the season opener at New Orleans.
The exact terms of Sundberg’s contract were not immediately available. If the Redskins tendered Sundberg a contract according to his standing as a restricted free agent, they would have had to make him an offer of at least $1.023 million – far above the $540,000 he made last season.
Sundberg’s agreement was first reported Sunday afternoon by The Washington Times.
