ASHBURN, Va. (AP) Kicker Dustin Hopkins has re-signed with the Washington Redskins, and backup offensive tackle Ty Nsekhe was given a second-round tender worth about $2.9 million.
The Redskins announced both moves Monday.
Hopkins has made 73 of 87 field-goal attempts in three seasons, putting him at 83.9 percent, which ranks second in franchise history among kickers with at least 50 tries. His career-long kick is 54 yards.
He's also made 94.9 percent of extra points, going 93 of 98.
Hopkins missed half of last season with a strained hip muscle. He went 14 of 17 on field-goal attempts and 18 of 19 on extra points.
The 6-foot-8, 338-pound Nsekhe has made 11 starts in the NFL and appeared in a total of 42 games. The 32-year-old tackle started five of the last six games last season.
